    A very interesting book that explores the divide between "classical" and "romantic" understanding.

    If Aristotle Ran General Motors

    User Comments:

    This book was written by Tom Morris, a former Philosophy professor at the University of Notre Dame. Professor Morris has a PHD in Philosophy and Religious Studies. Interestingly, I was in his Philosophy 101 class with "Rocket" Ismail in 1988, when Notre Dame won the national championship in college football. In the book, he actually mentions stunts he pulled in our class. This book is very full of wisdom and was definitely a life-changer for me. If you want to learn more about Professor Morris, check out his website at
