Finishing reading the classic, The Intellectual Life by Sertillanges

41jUEGNNQyL._SX297_BO1,204,203,200_ Antonin-Dalmace_SertillangesI’m finishing reading a great book, by Sertillanges. It is a classic “manual” for intellectual pursuits: how to organize one’s time, how to become a specialist without losing the wider perspective, etc. A.G. Sertillanges, O.P., (the O.P. abbreviates Order of Preachers, Ordo Praedicatorum, Dominicans, in England also called “Blackfriars”) wrote this book a century ago, and in some ways it is a bit old fashioned – he didn’t experience today’s deluge of information – but it is still an extremely useful work for anyone who wants an intellectual life, what we now call “life-long-learning”.
