In this thought-provoking study of the relationship between our reason and our experience of pleasure, the renowned professor and author Fr. James V. Schall shows how reason, religion, and pleasure are not in conflict with one another. Religion has to do with how man relates to God. Catholicism is not so much a religion as a revelation. It records and recalls how God relates to man. The mood of our time is that neither religion nor relevation has much to do with real life. Yet when we look at things as having meaning and order, they fit together in surprising ways. This coherence should bring us joy and teach us how reason, religion, and pleasure can work together for our benefit. Schall shows us why we have many reasons to think that our lives make sense, that our pleasures can be reasonable, and that our reason itself is a pleasure. Paper.
