Ten Myths about Character, Virtue and Virtue Education -- Plus Three Well-Founded Misgivings
Kristjánsson, Kristján
British Journal of Educational Studies, v61 n3 p269-287 2013
Initiatives to cultivate character and virtue in moral education at school continue to provoke sceptical responses. Most of those echo familiar misgivings about the notions of character, virtue and education in virtue -- as unclear, redundant, old-fashioned, religious, paternalistic, anti-democratic, conservative, individualistic, relative and situation dependent. I expose those misgivings as "myths", while at the same time acknowledging three better-founded historical, methodological and practical concerns about the notions in question.
