The Degrees of Knowledge

Notes: A classic of Catholic (Christian) philosophy, still in print in English translation (Maritain wrote in French). "The book is divided into two parts: Part one discusses the degrees of knowledge for science and philosophy – or ‘rational knowledge,’ and part two discusses the degrees of knowledge for religious faith and mysticism – or ‘super-rational knowledge.’"—the current publisher, the University of Notre Dame Press.

Edition + Condition: First edition in English (states First Published 1937" on the copyright page with no indication of later printings). A near fine copy in a spine-darkened, somewhat spine faded and thus very good copy. With a 25s. price sticker over the original 21s. price on the front flap.
