Mortimer Adler and the Paideia Group struggled to resist the shallowness of the “information age.” More than once Adler noted that, “we live in the century of the knowledge explosion and in the information society. It is hardly an age of understanding or one in which wisdom has come into its own.” Of Adler’s many books that act to counter this reality A Guidebook to Learning: For the Lifelong Pursuit of Wisdom offers significant assistance. It is a fine book to read in terms of various insights offered regarding the recorded history of knowledge. It is also a helpful resource as one searches for knowledge, understanding, and wisdom.
