JOSEF PIEPER FOUR CARDINAL VIRTUES PDF

September 21, While camping with my wife in Oregon I finally finished this classic work. Pieper addresses the four classic, constitutional, crucial or cardinal virtues: Prudence, Justice, Fortitude, and Temperance. As he unpacks each virtue the author channels Thomas Aquinas and some Augustine. He takes up what Aquinas gives, works with it, and adds his own thoughtful flavor to the dish.

September 21, While camping with my wife in Oregon I finally finished this classic work. Pieper addresses the four classic, constitutional, crucial or cardinal virtues: Prudence, Justice, Fortitude, and Temperance. As he unpacks each virtue the author channels Thomas Aquinas and some Augustine.

He takes up what Aquinas gives, works with it, and adds his own thoughtful flavor to the dish. Though Pieper was a Catholic thinker, and the material assumes some perspectives from that tradition, nevertheless, it is accessible to Protestants as well. There are insights aplenty that will catch readers a bit off guard. And the forthrightness of his observations and assertions is refreshing. My copy of this valuable volume is marked, page after page, with highlights and notes.

This is a book I will return to repeatedly! For those who are unfamiliar with the cardinal virtues, this is an excellent manuscript to become familiar with them.

In many places it will set you back in your chair and give you pause. I highly recommend the book.

Josef Pieper on the cardinal virtues

Goltigul They took for granted jsoef only the idea of virtue, which signifies human Tightness, but also the attempt to define it in that fourfold spectrum. Temperance and Moderation pp. Is not the subject always man himself, the human person? The strict specificity of ethical action is perceptible only to the living experience of the person required to decide. Prudence right judgmentJustice giving the other what is due to them, most specifically due to them as human personsFortitude the strength to do the goodcardinap Temperance keeping the natural desires of man in firtues propriety, displaying the real beauty of keeping oneself in line with reality. To those who have this greater love of God the truth of real things is revealed more plainly and more brilliantly; above all the super- natural reality of the Trinitarian God is made known to them more movingly and overwhelmingly. The doctrine of virtue, on the other hand, has things to say about this human person; it speaks both of the kind of being which is his when he enters the world, as a consequence of his createdness, and the kind of being he ought to strive toward and attain to by being prudent, just, brave, and temperate.
