In light of the new PrePub for the Great Books of the Western World (60 vols.) I wonder if we can get a Mortimer J. Adler collection. He was a prolific writer and philosopher. Take a look at the books he authored and tell us which you would like to see in Logos. My favourite is

The Paideia Proposal: An Educational Manifesto

Logos 7 Collectors Edition

Agreed.  The ones I've personally benefited from are:

  • How to Think About God: A Guide for the 20th-Century Pagan (1980) ISBN 0-02-016022-4 
  • Truth in Religion: The Plurality of Religions and the Unity of Truth (1990) ISBN 0-02-064140-0
  • Aristotle for Everybody: Difficult Thought Made Easy (1978) ISBN 0-684-83823-0
  • Six Great Ideas: Truth-Goodness-Beauty-Liberty-Equality-Justice (1981) ISBN 0-02-072020-3

How to Read a Book -- great for hermeneutics.

Aristotle for Everybody has been added to the Book Suggestions UserVoice. I encourage everyone who wants it in Logos/Verbum/Noet to visit and vote, and for anyone particularly interested in others of Adler's books to add them to the UserVoice.

“I want you to know how the people should behave in the house of God, which is the Church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of the truth.” - 1 Timothy 3:15 (EOB:NT).

I listened to a professor quote Adler saying,

“I am Jewish teaching Catholic philosophy at a Protestant school to a bunch of atheist.”
