The Intellectual's Checklist
All five movements of "Beethoven's Missa" solemnis. Check. The films that Kurasawa based on Western works. Check. Dante's "Nine Circles of Hell". Check. These are the sorts of elegant erudition every self-respecting intellectual should know - inside and out. In "The Intellectual's Checklist", aspiring pundits, poets, and philosophers find the arcane checklists that reveal whether they are truly well-versed enough in the arts and sciences of the obscure to warrant the esteemed moniker "Intellectual". From Nietzsche to Newton, Einstein to Eisenstadt, Sappho to Sartre, this elucidating volume gives readers all the esoterica they need to bask in the knowledge that they really do know everything. (Now that they've read this book.)
