    The summer before starting at Loyola I spent a lot of time up at grandmother's cottage in SW Michigan. The nearest town, Bridgman, was just starting its first library in what had been, long ago, the town's bank. Excited by the prospect, I stopped by, introduced myself to the head librarian, Ms. Roth, and asked if she needed help setting up.She did. Not having a large budget, they had put in an appeal for donations. The back of the place was piled high with books, most of them garbage. I offered to separate the wheat from the chaff. She agreed.Amongst the gothic romances and condensed books were some treasures, most notably in the fields of classics and ancient history and philosophy. I imagined that some amateur classicist had died, his wife bringing the stuff over, relieved to get it out of the house. There was quite a lot. These, I urged Ms. Roth to retain.Retain them she did--most of them. Some, however, she felt too weighty for any prospective readership, so she let me take what I wanted. Take I did. Jaeger's and Gomperz' sets being the two greatest treasures of my haul.

    Jaeger's brilliant insight was to explore the growth of Hellenic culture by emphasizing the role of education. It is a profound perspective that links the earliest Archaic poetry to the sophisticated philosophy of Plato. After reading more than a thousand pages, when one finishes the chapter on Demosthenes and the triumph of Macedonia, one's understanding of Greek civilization hasn't been transformed so much as it has been broadened through a deep synthesis which connects desperate elements into an illuminating whole.

    Cuando los americanos ocuparon Leipzig yo estaba estudiando los volúmenes 2 y 3 recién publicados de la obra Paideia de Werner Jaeger — también cosa rara, que esta obra de un «emigrante» escrita en alemán y publicada en una editorial alemana pudiera aparecer en los peores años de la guerra—. ¿Guerra total? Verdad y Método II Pág.387

    Ho approfondito solo le sezioni inerenti al tema della mia tesi di laurea, ma credo di poter dire che si tratti di un volume imprescindibile sul tema della Paideia.
