Maritain’s The Degrees of Knowledge
Degrees of Knowledge by Jacques Maritain. In this new translation of The Degrees of KnowledgeRalph McInerny attempts a more careful expression of Maritain’s original masterpiece than previous translations. Maritain proposes a hierarchy of the forms of knowledge by discussing the degrees of jafques and suprarational understanding. Nine appendices, some longer than the chapters of the book, advance Maritain’s thought, often by taking on criticism of earlier editions of the work.
Rightly called Maritain’s cardinal work, The Degrees of Knowledge is a magnificent and sagacious achievement. Jacques Maritain’s masterpiece proposes a hierarchy of forms of knowledge that culminate in mystical experience and wisdom, which is a gift of the Holy Ghost. Maritain argues that the intellectual life is meant to be complemented by the spiritual life and should culminate in sanctity. Paperbackpages.

InMaritain was honored by the French literary world with the national Grand Prize for letters.
He learned of the award at his retreat in a small monastery near Toulouse where he had been living in ascetic retirement for some years.
