Moral Psychology : Virtue and Character Volume 5, Hardback Book

Moral Psychology : Virtue and Character Volume 5 Hardback

Edited by Walter Sinnott-Armstrong, Christian B. Miller

Part of the A Bradford Book series

Description

Groundbreaking essays and commentaries on the ways that recent findings in psychology and neuroscience illuminate virtue and character and related issues in philosophy. Philosophers have discussed virtue and character since Socrates, but many traditional views have been challenged by recent findings in psychology and neuroscience.

This fifth volume of Moral Psychology grows out of this new wave of interdisciplinary work on virtue, vice, and character.

It offers essays, commentaries, and replies by leading philosophers and scientists who explain and use empirical findings from psychology and neuroscience to illuminate virtue and character and related issues in moral philosophy.

The contributors discuss such topics as eliminativist and situationist challenges to character; investigate the conceptual and empirical foundations of self-control, honesty, humility, and compassion; and consider whether the virtues contribute to well-being.
