The Intellectual Life: Its Spirit, Conditions, Methods by A. G. Sertillanges

A. G. Sertillanges’s The Intellectual Life: Its Spirit, Conditions, Methods is a brilliant work on the life of the mind. Balancing definition, practical tips, and warnings against pitfalls, Sertillanges sets a course for the Christian scholar. This book is an enduring work perhaps even more important in today’s world of digital distractions than when it originated in 1920.

Thank you for bringing this book to your viewers attention. I first read this book over twenty years ago, and have recommended it continuously to those who are serious about pursuing the life of the mind. There are many other wonderful books that are just as important but this one is a delight to read.
Thanks again,

Thanks Richard. I greatly enjoyed this book. I hadn’t heard about it until recently, but I’m glad I did. I’ll return to it in the future and recommend it to others.

Hi Camden! I just found this book because it was mentioned on another I’m currently reading. I immediately wanted to know more about it. The quote “Let your mind become a lens, thanks to the converging rays of attention… ” just grabbed me. I enjoyed your review. Thank you!
