Product Description

In these elegant and engaging essays, the internationally acclaimed Thomist Josef Pieper defines and defends philosophy as the search for and love of wisdom. True philosophy is not the work of joyless academics pondering over esoteric writings that have no relation to real life. Rather, the philosophical act, in which all reasonable men can participate, begins in wonder at what is, and continues with gratitude for what is given, and ends in love.
Josef Pieper is renowned for having popularized the philosophy of St. Thomas Aquinas. Pieper was a student of St. Thomas and, in his own voluminous works, makes the deep thought of the Angelic Doctor more accessable and understandable to the modern reader.
