Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Josef Pieper is one of may favourite writers. He is a very profound thinker and his works are very lucid, clear and suggesting. In this book Pieper reflects on an item which has been excluded from contemporary thinking, and his arguments show how the concept of tradition must be revisited and brought back to our culture, philosophy and thought. Tradition has to be seen as our own world, the world we live in, because the past , all the beliefs, ideas, convictions, world-views we are the heirs - even if we reject or reformulate some of those inheritances. I highly recommend this and others Pieper’s works. One of my favourites is “Leisure: The Basis of Culture
