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 listened to a professor quote Adler saying,

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