Josef Pieper: Explorations in the Thought of a Philosopher of Virtue

Journal of Religious Ethics 11 (1):114 - 134 (1983)
Abstract
In a time of intensified interest in an "ethic of virtue," Josef Pieper stands out as one who has pondered and written about the virtues for many years. This paper explores some aspects of Pieper's thought about the virtues and focuses especially on four problems: (1) the question of the unity of the virtues; (2) the relation between natural and theological virtues; (3) the dangers for Christian ethics of picturing virtue as habitual; and (4) the question whether virtue needs any reward beyond virtue itself.
