Educating for Intellectual Virtues: From Theory to Practice
Baehr, Jason
Journal of Philosophy of Education, v47 n2 p248-262 May 2013
After a brief overview of what intellectual virtues are, I offer three arguments for the claim that education should aim at fostering "intellectual character virtues" like curiosity, open-mindedness, intellectual courage, and intellectual honesty. I then go on to discuss several pedagogical and related strategies for achieving this aim. (Contains 35 notes.)
