The Powers of the Intellect: The Triad of Powers, Habits, and Acts

The latest issue of the Center’s weekly, The Great Ideas Online (No. 1051), discussed this chapter from Intellect: Mind Over Matter, by Mortimer Adler.

"Existentially, powers come first, habits second, and habitual actions last; and in origin powers precede acts, and acts precede habits, for it is by the operation of our powers that we form habits."
