By Joseph Pieper

He has selected the best and most representative passages and arranged them in an order that gives sense to the whole and aids in the understanding of each excerpt.

Pieper's reputation rests on his remarkable ability to restate traditional wisdom in terms of contemporary problems. He is a philosopher who writes in the language of common sense, presenting involved issues in a clear, lucid and simple manner. Among his many well-known works included in this anthology are selections fromLeisure: The Basis of CultureThe Four Cardinal VirtuesAbout LoveBelief and FaithHappiness and Contemplation, and Scholasticism.
