Re: The Seven Virtues

I'd agree if by "foundation" you mean that the process of striving for the seven virtues, as well as thinking about what they really mean and how they could/should play out in your life, provides a decent set of guidelines for living a good life. I don't think that they're the "foundation" in the sense that you get these seven virtues and then go on to have a good life: realistically, most people might really achieve one or two of those by the time they get to the end of a life well lived, so having all seven as a "foundation" in the usual sense of the word (basis or starting point) isn't going to happen.
