Description

This collection of original essays on virtue ethics and moral education seeks to fill this gap in the recent literature of moral education, combining broader analyses with detailed coverage of:

* the varieties of virtue

* weakness and integrity

* relativism and rival traditions

* means and methods of educating the virtues

The rare collaboration of professional ethical theorists and educational philosophers provides a ground-breaking work and an exciting new focus in a growing area of research.

Reviews

`The book should be of interest in the intended way because it successfully joins educational philosophy to moral philosophy, and does so without artifice.' - Jonathon Jacobs, Journal of Moral Education

`This is a good book.' - journal of Moral Education

`the authors' knowledge of the social scientific and psychological literature gives their discussions a kind of traction that philosophical debates often lack' - Journal of Moral Education

'These essays will be valuable tools for lecturers in Ethics and Moral Education to explore the implications for the education establishment and beyond. - Caroline Hancock, Trinity College, Carmarthen, UK
