Trasancos on Adler's 'The Angels and Us'

Stacy Trasancos reviews The Angels and Us (1982) by Mortimer J. Adler.
"To a materialist the terms 'incorporeal substance' or 'spiritual being' or 'mind without body' are utterly impossible, a contradiction in terms as meaningless as 'square circle'. Adler dismissed this fundamental premise as a 'philosophically questionable' act of faith rather than self-evident truth."
