Josef Pieper is an insightful author he really does a tremendous job in such a short book describing Tradition He describes what it really is why its important and how it works The best part comes through most of all in how he tries to explain it to a modern audience and although this book is written a few decades ago when I read his counter arguments it would seem he was replying to accusations made against Tradition that we would find to this day in our society albeit amplified When he refutes the arguments made against Tradition however he is not only honest and understanding of the opposition but he also finds the values in the opposition and puts them in their proper place under the aegis of The Tradition It was also nice to see that even Joseph Pieper used Augustine's Retractationes to describe how The Tradition is something that stretched through time

Tradition is the topic here what it is is not how to keep it how to lose it Another of the many critics of post Enlightenment social spiritual modernity Pieper writes “A future without a past is null and void ie our perpetual present And hope without a foundation is just another name for despair” For Pieper the only traditions that can survive are those begun by something men cannot assail – God Mere humans like America’s Founders aren’t distant enough mysterious enough inscrutable enough to have lasting power and yet 242 years on their system of governance stands up to a want to be dictator – so far Pieper does understand something the likes of Richard Dawkins don’t “When what has been believed becomes verified and critically established” Pieper writes “at the same moment it loses its character as tradition” That is traditions – at least religious traditions that Pieper reveals are central to him – must not make sense in the way science makes sense of nature The inscrutable nature of myth art religion are what give them power because they make sense to human nature odd as it and they can be While this reader agrees with Pieper that a civilization without a tradition becomes rudderless as America is a shining example Pieper’s appeal to and reuirement of a divine source will suite those who don’t need convincing The rest of us and modernity itself has a much harder nut to crack than a leap of faith a kind of convincing that has both power over that mystic loving human nature and rational weight In the end I found Pieper at times tedious and not convincing though he does offer some food for thought
