Should Families Have an Intellectual Life?

“People sup together, play together, travel together, but they do not think together. Hardly any homes have any intellectual life whatsoever, let alone one that informs the vital interests of life. Educational TV marks the high tide for family intellectual life.”

Allan Bloom – The Closing of the American Mind, p. 58.

Is Bloom correct?

How do we revive “intellectual life” in our families?
