I listen to Great Courses on Audible. It helps to keep my brain working. Right now I am nearing the end of Einstein’s Relativity and the Quantum Revolution: Modern Physics for Non-Scientists. (US HERE – UK HERE) In that context, I also had reason this morning to peruse the must-own book by A.G. Sertillanges, OP, The Intellectual Life: Its Spirit, Conditions, Methods (US HERE – UK HERE).
I found this in Sertillagnes (p. 116), which dove-tailed with my relativity endeavor:
The intellectual position of Thomism is so well chosen, so removed from all the extremes where abysses of error yawn, so central as regards the heights, that one is logically led up to it from every point of knowledge, and from it one radiates along continuous paths, in every direction of thought and experience.
That was a little bright spot for my day, a discrete packet of energy for my mind.
