Summer readings thus far...

As surprising as this may be for those who think I don't read these days, here are the books I've actually read since school got out, the best by far being the short novel Manalive by Chesterton:

Jean Grimshaw, Philosophy and Feminist Thinking (1986)

John Taylor Gatto, The Underground History of American Education: A School Teacher's Intimate Investigation into the Problem of Modern Schooling (2000)

G.K. Chesterton, Saint Thomas Aquinas: The Dumb Ox (1933)

G.K. Chesterton, Manalive (1912)

Steven E. Rhoads, Taking Sex Differences Seriously (2004)

Peter H. Spader, Scheler's Ethical Personalism: Its Logic, Development, and Promise (2002)

John F. Crosby, Personalist Papers (2003)


And I'm currently in the middle of or just starting the following:

Peter Brown, The Body and Society: Men, Women, and Sexual Renunciation in Early Christianity (1990)

Jean Bethke Elshtain, Public Man, Private Woman: Women in Social and Political Thought (1993)

Thomas DuBay, Fire within: St. Teresa of Avila, St. John of the Cross and the Gospel - on Prayer (1990)

Maurice Merleau-Ponty, Phenomenology of Perception (1945)

Jim Mollenkopf, The Great Black Swamp: Historical Tales of 19th Century Northwest Ohio (1999)

I just finished Phenomenology of Perception. Merleau-Ponty is a very poetic writer. And I also have to agree that G. K. Chesterton is just an incredible writer. If you haven't read The Man Who was Thursday I would highly recommend it.
