How Reading Josef Pieper Can Help You Stay Sane by Robert M. Woods
I don't think Martin Mosebach is considered to be a Thomist. Are there any outstanding German Thomists still? I don't have any familiarity with current intellectual trends in Germany, though I know who some of the big names are in philosophy and political theory. I don't think the secularization of Germany can be blamed on the economic transformation of West Germany; things have not been good there for quite some time. Germany might make for an interesting contrast with the United States, with respect to federalism and social and political trends. What is the typical OF Mass in Germany like?
