Thought for the day ...

In the case of good books, the point is not to see how many of them you can get through, but how many can get through to you.
- Mortimer Adler, born on this date in 1902

  1. Edward Feser on Mortimer Adler:

    "I am well aware, of course, that many mainstream academic philosophers dismiss Adler, because he (largely) wrote for a popular audience and took unfashionable positions. But here, as in so many other cases, such people simply don't know what the hell they are talking about. (I include my younger self, who also dismissed Adler before, you know, actually reading him...)"
