Hello,

I'm looking for the translation of "rigueur intellectuelle" in that kind of sentences:

la rigueur intellectuelle est nécessaire à la réussite des élèves.

Thank you.
Alex.

    Salut,

    I understand the meaning, just having a problem trying to come up with an idiomatic phrase.

    What about:

    Mental/Intellectual application?

    Ok. In "rigueur intellectuelle", I think there is an idea of honesty and rationality at the same time... Actually I find it pretty difficult to translate.

    I realise that this is very much later, but in case someone needs the phrase again, "academic rigour" is currently in vogue and seems to fit the context
