Jacques Maritain (1882-1973) was a French Catholic philosopher. Raised Protestant, he was agnostic before converting to Catholicism in 1906. An author of more than 60 books, he helped to revive Thomas Aquinas for modern times, and was influential in the development and drafting of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. This work is an attempt to define the main directions which seem suitable to the spiritual life of persons living in the world and occupied in intellectual pursuits.
