Resources

Here is the place to post important resources on classical, liberal and philosophic education:

One of the best introductions to the importance of the correct intellectual tools for study is Dorothy Sayers's The Lost Tools of Learning.

Re: Resources

A Brazilian Traditionalist and Scholastic philosopher I was very keen on back in the day use to wax lyrical about A. G. Sertillanges' The Intellectual Life: Its Spirit, Conditions and Methods. I have as yet to check it out myself but I see copies can be bought cheaply from Amazon plus the text is relatively easy to find in PDF format online.

This essay has literally been my guide in my self-education.

This set is the most amazing thing ever for a beginner, or even an advanced student! I'm trying to buy it myself but I can't find anyone who's shipping it to Israel.

No, I’m afraid; I don’t even speak Portuguese. I first read the selection of Carvalho’s essays available in English on his website, and then later on went through all others with the help of Google Translate and a dictionary. I read a whole book of his that way even (The Garden of Affliction – analysing the legacy of Epicureanism).

EDIT: With that in mind I'm going to post Carvalho's own suggested reading list. It's in Portuguese as one might expected but it's easy to get most of the titles from the author names:

Interesting. I would never expect to someone from another country to know Carvalho's work. If anyone is interested in a translation of any title of the link, please ask me.

Also worth noting -

John of Salisbury, The Metalogicon of John of Salisbury: A Twelfth-Century Defense of the Verbal and Logical Arts of the Trivium

Sister Miriam Joseph, The Trivium: The Liberal Arts of Logic, Grammar, and Rhetoric


The sacred rights of mankind ... are written, as with a sunbeam, in the whole volume of human nature, by the hand of the divinity itself; and can never be erased or obscured by mortal power. (Alexander Hamilton, The Farmer Refuted)

Re: Resources

A nice logic text from a Scholastic point of view is Principles of Logic, by George Hayward Joyce. You can read it at https://archive.org/details/principleslogic00joycgoog, or get a cheap hardcopy from Amazon (Forgotten books Classic reprint series).

His Principles of Natural Theology is also very good.

For those who want to take a shot at learning Latin, I like Hans Ørberg's Lingua Latina per se Illustrata

It is precisely “values” that are the powerless and threadbare mask of the objectification of beings, an objectification that has become flat and devoid of background. No one dies for mere values.
~Martin Heidegger
