Item description for The End of Time: A Meditation on the Philosophy of History by Josef Pieper...

This is a work of rare prophetic brilliance by Josef Pieper, one of this century's most profound and lucid expositors of the thought of St. Thomas Aquinas. This book was written to throw light on an ancient question that has vexed and tormented many. What is the nature of "The End" toward which, even now, the world and men are moving? In this short work, Pieper provides a rigorous and sustained philosophical analysis, anchored to "the primeval rock of theoogical pronouncement", in order precisely to understand the finalities of time and history. Josef Pieper was professor at Munster University, Germany.

More About Josef Pieper

Josef Pieper Josef Pieper (1904-1997) was professor of philosophical anthropology at the University of Münster/Germany; he was a member of several academies and received numerous awards and distinctions, among them the International Balzan Prize for outstanding achievements in the field of humanities.

Pieper is among the most widely read philosophers of the 20th century. The main focus of his thought is the overcoming of cultural forms of secular totalitarianism and of its philosophical foundations through a rehabilitation of the Christian concept of man that is related to experience and action. Plato and Thomas Aquinas in particular were the inspiring sources of a constructive criticism of contemporary culture.

Josef Pieper was born in 1904 and died in 1997.

Reviews - What do customers think about End of Time: A Meditation on the Philosophy of History?

Useful insights into the nature of end of time  Jul 28, 2008
This is not Pieper at his best but nonetheless very enjoyable. It is curious that (unlike Gilson), Pieper indicates that it is essential that any philosophising ahout time must have a theological underpinning. I suppose if there is isn't a theological underpinning how does one discern where time is cyclical (like Buddhism) or linear with a beginning an an end (Christianity). I found Pieper's insights re the anti-christ and the end of time very valuable, the idea that the anti-christ will appea pre-eminently ethical and rational.
