High School Activities for 2018-2019
Beginning Saturday October 6, 2018
High School students may participate in a review of the text
"Aristotle for Everybody: Difficult Thought made Easy"
by Mortimer Adler.
The work has been described as
an "introduction to common sense" for young people of any age.
In a nutshell, the book considers the observable traits
that define us as human beings:
man the Philosophical Animal; the Maker; the Doer and the Knower. And concludes with the radical idea that self-knowledge and
careful observation of the world
can lead us to God.
The class is being offered by Erik Ellis, a PhD candidate
at Notre Dame with years of pre-college teaching experience.
