Where there is life, the wisdom of our countless generations has saturated the soil. Our strength is a luminous sun, towards which all intelligence blossoms… And the impervious shelter, beneath which it has prospered.”

The Didact’s Best Books of 2020

Once again, it’s time to go over the best fiction and non-fiction books that I read this year. Sadly, my ability to read as much as I would have liked declined significantly throughout the year, for various reasons. So I managed only about 34 books, which is...

The Didact’s Best Albums of 2018

This year wasn’t a big one for me in terms of music, for a number of reasons. Most of them had to do with the fact that, after I lost my job, I pretty much stopped buying new music for a little while. On top of that, I spent a lot of time traveling, and –...

The Didact’s Best Books of 2018

And here we are again, at the end of another year, where it is time for me to follow my usual tradition, stretching back a whole five years (!!!) and put together a list of my favourite books from the past 12 months for everyone (who can be bothered to read any...
