    The essence of the book may be expressed in a few sentences, the rest being little more than evidence or illustration. I have written for all classes, in the conviction that the intellectual life is really within the reach of every one who earnestly desires it. An intellectual is a person who engages in critical thinking and reading, research, writing, and human self-reflection about society. Many everyday roles require the application of intelligence to skills that may have a psychomotor component—for example, in the fields of medicine or the arts—but these do not necessarily involve the practitioner in the "world of ideas.".

    A Christianity Today Book of the Year; What is an intellectual? How can you learn to think well? What does it mean to love God with your mind? Can the intellectual life be a legitimate Christian calling? Is the intellectual life your calling? James Sire brings wit and wisdom to bear on these questions and their possible answers. Knowing Things Intellectually vs. Knowing Them Emotionally. Knowing our own minds is difficult at the best of times. It is extraordinarily hard to secure even basic insights into our characters and motivations – of a kind that we hope can free us from some of the neuroses and compulsions that spoil so much of our lives.

    The Intellectual Life is a practical guide for how to structure one's life so as to make progress as a scholar. What Jesus Saw from the Cross is a spiritual work that drew upon the time Sertillanges spent living in Jerusalem. Certain of Sertillanges' works are concerned with political theory, with French identity and the structure of the Born: Antonin-Dalmace Sertillanges, 16 . These intriguing questions, which until recently historians considered unanswerable, are addressed in this book. Using innovative research techniques and a vast range of unexpected sources, The Intellectual Life of the British Working Classes tracks the rise and decline of the British autodidact from the pre-industrial era to the twentieth century.3/5(2).
