What They Are Worth – Why We Need Them
It is heard so often in our time: the call for more discipline, for strong values and for greater morality. Clearly, something is missing when a person’s actions seem arbitrary and other people no longer play any role at all in the decision-making process. The feeling of having no foothold and being overwhelmed by a complex world that offers infinite options has become a sickness of our time. In a society with such a diversity of lifestyles, where do we find orientation for our own behavior? How can we lead peaceful and just lives?

William J. Hoye presents the ancient virtues as a path that leads us from egotism to justice, from fulfilling our short-term desires to wisdom, from unthinking materialism to moderation, from making do with the status quo to courageous dedication to a happy life.
