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.


`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
