The Proper Attitude of Man

The good is that which is in accord with objective reality.

An insight into the nature of the good makes certain attitudes impossible.

It makes impossible the attitude of always referring to oneself and to the judgment of one’s conscience.

The man who wishes to realize the good does not look upon his own act, but upon the truth of real objects.

Objectivity, if thereby we mean fidelity to being, is the proper attitude of man.

Josef Pieper, Reality and the Good
