   schema:reviewBody ""Josef Pieper was one of this century's most influential thinkers. A leading Catholic philosopher and authority on Thomas Aquinas, his writings have won a wide audience through such books as The Four Cardinal Virtues and About Love. This important book is one of few extended studies of Pieper's thought - in particular, of his contributions to a philosophy of hope. Pieper was one of the first modern philosophers to explore the idea of hope in human life, and Schumacher discusses his development alongside contributions by Sartre, Jaspers, Marcel, Heidegger, Bloch, and other thinkers." "Schumacher looks at hope as a virtue, one opposed by vices such as despair and presumption, particularly as they are treated in existentialism and Marxism. He also explores Pieper's treatment of hope in relation to the ideas of death and immorality, and in the philosophy of history. Using the idea of hope to examine such themes as dignity, ethics, the good, and the just, Schumacher provides a valuable, wide-ranging introduction to a shaper of contemporary Christian thought against a richly drawn intellectual background."--Jacket." ;
