Excerpt

The Aristotelian Society of Marquette University each year invites a scholar to speak on the Philosophy of St. Thomas Aquinas. These lectures have come to be called the Aquinas Lectures and are customarily delivered on the Sunday nearest March 7, the feast day of the Society's patron saint.

This year the Society has the pleasure of recording the lecture of Werner Jaeger, Ph.D. Litt.D., "university" professor at Harvard University and director of the Harvard Institute for Classical Studies.

Born at Lobberich, Germany, in 1888, Prof. Jaeger received his early education at the Gymnasium Thomaeum at Kempen in the Rhineland. In 1907 he attended the University of Marburg and thereafter the University of Berlin, whence he gained his doctorate in 1911.

In 1913 he taught at the University of Berlin and in 1914 at the University of Basel, Switzerland, where he was professor of Greek language and literature. He became full professor of classics at the University of Kiel, Germany . . .
