I am a Ph. D student at Marquette University. The primary purpose of this blog is to get my ideas out there, and then have other people scrutinize, critique, build upon, and systematize beliefs. This blog will sometimes pertain to what I'm learning in my classes, but it will occasionally deal with non-classroom issues that I'm thinking about as well.

    This is interesting but how did they determine the worth of these? If it is by a poll then it is interesting because it would suggest that there is a difference between ‘intellectual pleasures’ and less intellectual ones. It interests me that as much as you here about how people love to go to the movies over reading a book. Still the value of a good book is more then a good movie, interesting.
