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. Though Pieper was a Catholic thinker, and the material assumes some perspectives from that tradition, nevertheless, it is accessible to Protestants as well.

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.
