Reverence is an ancient virtue dating back thousands of years. It survives among us in half-forgotten patterns of behavior and in the vestiges of old ceremonies. Yet, Paul Woodruff says, we have lost sight of reverence. This short, elegiac volume makes an impassioned case for the fundamentalimportance of the forgotten virtue of reverence, and how awe for things greater than oneself can--indeed must--be a touchstone for other virtues like respect, humility, and charity.Ranging widely over diverse cultural terrain--from Philip Larkin to ancient Greek poetry, from modern politics to Chinese philosophy--Woodruff shows how absolutely essential reverence is to a well-functioning society. He tackles some thorny questions: How does reverence allow not only forleaders but for followers? What role does reverence play in religion? Do some religions misuse reverence? Must reverence be humorless? In the process, Woodruff shows convincingly how reverence plays an unseen part in virtually every human relationship.Elegantly written, thoughtful yet urgent, Reverence is sure to reach out to a wide variety of people interested in the moral health of Western culture, showing how our own intellectual and spiritual legacy can guide us more than we realize.… (mere)

Very good, looks at a forgotten virtue ( )
  robertshaw | Apr 25, 2009 |
A book written by an idiot for idiots. It's simple, uninteresting crap. ( )
  pickpocket | Feb 27, 2009 |
An interesting meditation on the virtue of reverence and its relevance to modern life. Drawing on both Ancient Greek and Chinese philosophy, the author explains what reverence is and why it is important.
This is not some 'new-age' feel good attempt to make a quick buck out of making philosophy easy for non-philosophers. Rather it is an in-depth look at virtue, discussing not just reverence but also such things as the difference between morals and ethics. ( )
