The Intellectual Life
Description: A.G. Sertillanges first wrote The Intellectual Life in 1920 as an aid for those called by God to be scholars. In this book, he presents the trials and joys of intellectual work along with the virtues and daily practices necessary to succeed. Sertillanges also reminds us what true success looks like: a life lived in willful obedience to God. Thus, The Intellectual Life deals not only with practical questions of how to organize ideas and time, but also tackles questions of sin, falsehood, and living a well-balanced life dedicated to discovering and sharing truth.
