An Australian philanthropist has endowed a program for studying the Great Books

Australian businessman Paul Ramsay made a fortune in private health care and regional television. When he died in 2014, he left his A$3 billion fortune to establish a philanthropic foundation. A good chunk of that is being invested in The Ramsay Centre for Western Civilisation, a program for revitalising the study of the humanities in Australia. MercatorNet spoke with Dr Stephen McInerney, Executive Officer (Academic) at the Ramsay Centre, about this ambitious project.
