    [Blogging] On virtue
    Image sourced from this blog post. Rahner, who I referenced yesterday stands in a tradition that traces itself back via Geist in Welt (a fluid combination of Aquinas, Maréchal and Heidegger) to the work of Aristotle; and he stands tall in that company by the way. Also critical to Aristotle’s thinking on ethics is the idea of balance.
