I shall sail Dec. 8th Tres a vous, cherie". Ernest Dimnet (1866-1954) was a French cleric, author and philosopher. His best known work, The Art of Thinking (1930) invites the reader into a state of honesty where he evaluates himself as a thoughtful human being, for humans too often only "think of thinking" instead of actually thinking, which obstructs production of any original thought. Dimnet is also well regarded for his books, What We Live By (1932) and for his popular French translations of English books written by Charlotte, Emily, and Anne Bronte. Toned. Corners creased. Worn and soiled.. Light surface creases. Otherwise, fine condition.
