Editorial Reviews

Review

I think the authors of this book, Christopher Kaczor and Father Thomas Sherman, were inspired when they hit upon the idea of providing a summary of the cardinal virtues such as this. Here you will find a discussion of the virtue needed to make right judgments about the good, the virtue of prudence. You will find discussion of the two virtues that enable us to act well despite the tug of our emotions, the virtues of temperance and courage. Finally, the virtue of justice deals with the fact that we are members of communities, the family, the city, and not isolated and autonomous individuals. Christopher Kaczor and Father Sherman have put us all in their debt. The idea for this book was a great one; its execution is marvelous. The rest is up to the reader. --Ralph McInerny

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I just finished a class with Dr. Kaczor at LMU using this book and it was great; it contains a great selection of articles from Aquinas that sufficiently convey each virtue, with enough information to get anybody up to speed on his ethics. Dr. Kaczor's short introduction to each Cardinal Virtue, as well as the informative footnotes, offer a clear and consistent view that is relatively easy to read.
