In the early 1930s, when they were all in Jacques Maritain’s circle of friends, Étienne Gilson and his pupil and colleague Henri Gouhier came to know and admire the writer and literary critic Charles Du Bos known for his intellectual and spiritual sympathy for the authors he studied. In 1936, Gouhier took notes on a conversation with Du Bos in which he commented on Gilson’s extraordinary common sense, inner serenity, and healthy and balanced soul. The result is a brief, insightful, and original portrait of Gilson.
