A preface briefly discusses notions of why evil exists, and segues to the main argument that ethics, not reason is the best defense against unruly passions. Chapter 1 lays out the Greco-Roman argument defending reason as the shield against unruly passion. We dismiss this, showing that reason deals with definable things, not indefinable sentiments of the passions. The indefinable ethical standards are the shield. We fight lust with ethics not with reason. I divert the argument a bit to go over the origins of Greek culture by contrasting academic with biblical sources for its derivation. I loosely connect the reason argument to an essentially amoral view of the world expressed in Greco-Roman thought. We then show that passion outflanks and deludes reason at every turn, that fighting indefinable passions with definable dependent reason is a bad idea. Chapter 2 comments that faith, hope and charity with truth added to the armory is the armor of virtue against the unruly passions of lust.
