The Silence of Goethe book. A short essay on qualities of the hidden life manifested in the writings of Goethe, written by Josef Pieper following a time of imprisonment in which he read Goethe’s letters and works. More of a reflection than a polemic, It’s best to read this slowly and reflect. I enjoyed how Pieper brought in ties to Aquinas here and there.

Josef Pieper wrote this in 1945 being plucked from the chaos of war and delivered into a German m ". He was present during some very violent fighting and must have seen chaos up close, first hand. as the hermit who, though still in his cell, hears the raging of the sea. - Goethe, in a letter to Charlotte von Stein, 1816. What is best is the deep stillness in which, against the world, I live and grow, and gain what it cannot take from me by fire and sword.

Pieper shows that the Greeks and medieval Europeans, understood the great value and importance of leisure. He also points out that religion can be born only in leisure ndash; a leisure that allows time for the contemplation of the nature of God. Leisure has been, and always will be, the first foundation of any culture.

Josef Pieper was a philosopher, not a literary critic, which makes his approach to Goethe unique, reflective and , well, philosophical. I believe Goethe himself would have appreciated it. While reading extensively in Goethe's collected letters, Pieper discovered something he had not expected. Goethe was an inveterate letter writer, who corresponded with a wide range of people, seemingly inexhaustible in his curiosity and with abundant ideas to share. However, Pieper was surprised to find at the heart of this apparently gregarious man a core of reticence, hence the title of his book. Pieper builds a kind of moral philosophy based on his Goethe discovery. He argues that Goethe's reticence or silence helped him to overcome the "sterility of everyday talk" and nurture within a sense of hope which was not polluted by the "deafening talk" of the world. He specifically mentions the marketplace with its deluge of advertising. What surprised me in his argument was his connection between such futile talk and the hopelessness which plagues so many people's minds and hearts. The very act of remaining silent, he argues, serves as a "kind of training in hope." Philosophy as Pieper presents it is not simply ideas on paper or abstract ideas to prove an intellectual point. It is a summons to live a richer, more fulfilling life, informed by moral purpose. It resembles the startling closing line of Rilke's "Archaic Bust of Apollo": "You must change your life." I plan to explore this nexus of silence and hope in my own life. This is what Pieper promises us if we heed his words: "This listening silence means a stillness, which, liked a breath, has penetrated into the inmost chamber of one's own soul." And he quotes Goethe who discovered the "great happiness in quietude." This volume includes Pieper's resonant thirty- page essay and excerpts from
Goethe's letters, with a separate index for the essay and the letters.
