Description - Virtue, Theory and Moral Education by David Carr

The post-war revival of interest in virtue ethics has yielded enormous advances in our understanding of moral psychology and development. However, despite the widespread interest of educational philosophers in virtue theorists from Aristotle to Alasdair MacIntyre, it would appear that the theory and practice of moral education have yet to draw upon virtue ethics to any appreciable degree. 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.
