About the Author

Matthew Pianalto is associate professor of philosophy at Eastern Kentucky University.


Pianalto's On Patience has filled a large gap in contemporary discussion of virtue ethics, lifted the notion of patience from its philosophical obscurity, and called attention to the importance of patience as a foundational virtue. For a long time, the concept of patience has been given a short shrift in philosophical discussions, so it is delightful and refreshing to see the first book-length philosophical examination of the topic.... By taking the road less traveled, Pianalto has done a great service to virtue ethics by reclaiming the long-neglected virtue of patience. His excellent book has thrust the virtue of patience to the foreground of the contemporary revival of virtue ethics, and will spark widespread philosophical interest in examining the nature of patience and its intricate relationship with other virtues that have long enjoyed the spotlight. * Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews *
