Writer & Reading

Reading is a basic tool in the living of a good life.-- Mortimer J. Adler

Mortimer Jerome Adler (December 28, 1902 – June 28, 2001) was an American educator, philosopher, and popular author. As a philosopher he worked with Aristotelian and Thomistic thought. He lived for the longest stretches in New York City, Chicago, San Francisco, and San Mateo. He worked for Columbia University, the University of Chicago, Encyclopædia Britannica, and Adler's own Institute for Philosophical Research.
