His hard won lessons, as captured in Liber Novus: the Red Book, are the lessons we all need right now.
We believe that intelligence and intimacy are soulmates, not adversaries. We hope to show this in everything we do. Rigorous intellectual inquiry need not be disembodied, nor without depth and soul."
