James how the heck are you comfortable asking you parents for books called "Way of the Ascetics" and stuff written by people named Theophylact but you're too scared to have icons or pray in front of them?

It's an exhaustive overview of the Metaphysical thought of Thomas Aquinas.
Chapters: 1) Aquinas on the nature of metaphysics
2) Our Discovery of the Subject of Metaphysics
3) The Problem of Parmenides and the Analogy of Being
4) Participation and the Problem of the One and the Many
5) Essence-Esse composition and the One and the Many
6) Relative Non-being and the one and the many
7) Substance-Accident composition
8 ) Substance-Accidents, and Esse
9) Prime Matter and Substantial Form
10) Arguments for God's existence (Introductory Remarks)
11) Arguments for God's Existence in Earlier Writings
12) The Five Ways

13) Quidditative Knowledge of God and Analogical Knowledge
14)Concluding Remarks

This is quite a scholarly look at Aquinas, from the perspective of a scholarly Thomist. One need not agree with all of Wippel's arguments to appreciate this book.

The Invisible Gorilla - And Other Ways Our Intuitions Deceive Us, by Christopher Chabris and Daniel Simons

Fascinating read. It speaks about how when we focus on certain things, our minds tend to filter out the unexpected or unusual, how we tend to have more trust in personal testimony than statistical data, even when the data says something much different (because we naturally prefer narrative, with its appeal to emotion, to abstract data), and how faulty our memories can be (including the phenomenon of failure of source memory, where we appropriate other peoples' stories into our personal narratives and make them our own). Now I understand why my brother always takes my stories and tells them back to me years later as something that happened to him!  Cheesy Anyway, if you're into this kind of thing, I highly recommend this book!

Why Evolution is True, by Jerry A. Coyne... on audiobook... I listen while I do housework. Great book.

Has anyone read anything by Alasdair MacIntyre? Just curious what folks think of him.

I am reading Faust, albeit at such a slow place to comprehend what the hell is going on. I don't know if I'm up to the challenge to be honest, but I'll readily admit it is a beautiful work thus far.

And Nico, you're favorite word "vouchsafe" is in the translation.

Interesting guy, old Alasdair. He eventually becomes a kind of Thomist, but not quite your typical one. He is very interested in discussions concerning the validity and objectivity/subjectivity of reason.
