Review:

One of the most urgent intellectual needs of the age is to recover a genuinely ontological sense of the good. Adrian Reimers new book makes a decisive contribution to filling this need. Drawing on the whole of Wojtyla s corpus--not only his well-known books, audiences, and encyclicals, but also his dissertations, early lectures, plays, and poetry--Reimers demonstrates the light that metaphysics casts on Wojtyla s rich moral thought. His attention to Wojtyla s repeated insistence that phenomenology has to be grounded in a philosophy of being, moreover, serves to correct common misconceptions of the late pope s thought and to show how his genuinely novel insights into human action fits into more traditional accounts. This is a very informative book. --D. C. Schindler, Villanova University

Adrian Reimers has transformed the lives of a generation of Notre Dame undergraduates by introducing them in his classes to the thought of John Paul II. No one on campus has been a more reliable--or a more inspiring--guide to the whole of his revolutionary thought. It should be an occasion for celebration then that his work is now made available to everyone in this splendid volume. --David Solomon, University of Notre Dame

This book examines John Paul II s profound engagement with diverse philosophical traditions. Reimers focuses on the nature of the Good, deftly navigating between Thomistic and phenomenological thought. He explores key questions about value, action, the will, the common good and love. Reimers shows that rather than embracing legalism and manualism, John Paul II rationally debates ultimate questions. This is a sophisticated work, a product of careful research, and it will help us better appreciate John Paul II s remarkable philosophical legacy. --Derek Jeffreys, University of Wisconsin Green Bay
