9780226327198: Putting On Virtue: The Legacy of the Splendid Vices

Augustine famously claimed that the virtues of pagan Rome were nothing more than splendid vices. This critique reinvented itself as a suspicion of acquired virtue as such, and true Christian virtue has, ever since, been set against a false, hypocritical virtue alleged merely to conceal pride. Putting On Virtue reveals how a distrust of learned and habituated virtue shaped both early modern Christian moral reflection and secular forms of ethical thought. Jennifer Herdt develops her claims through an argument of broad historical sweep, which brings together the Aristotelian tradition as taken up by Thomas Aquinas with the early modern thinkers who shaped modern liberalism. In chapters on Luther, Bunyan, the Jansenists, Mandeville, Hume, Rousseau, and Kant, she argues that efforts to make a radical distinction between true Christian virtue and its tainted imitations actually created an autonomous natural ethics separate from Christianity. This secular value system valorized pride and authenticity, while rendering graced human agency less meaningful. Ultimately, Putting On Virtue traces a path from suspicion of virtue to its secular inversion, from confession of dependence to assertion of independence.

About the Author:

Jennifer A. Herdt is the Stark Professor of Christian Ethics at Yale University.

Review:

"Erudite and lucid, Jennifer Herdt''s comprehensive study of theological and secular virtue is exceptionally engaging . . . . A theologically rich, historically grounded, and philosophically challenging book. . . . that resembles the magisterial work of Charles Taylor."--Jonathan Rothchild, "Journal of Theological Studies"--Jonathan Rothchild "Journal of Theological Studies "

"In terms of both breadth and depth, Herdt''s book is a masterful treatise. Its originality and intrigue lie in two areas in particular. The first is her overall project of demonstrating how this tension of mimesis and performance lies at the heart of virtue-based morality. . . . The second area of originality is her specific retrieval of many thinkers who have often been overlooked in terms of what contribution they might make to contemporary discussions of virtue."--Tom Grimwood, "Metapsychology"--Tom Grimwood "Metapsychology "
