Self-Esteem and Moral Virtue.
Nesbitt, Winston
Journal of Moral Education, v22 n1 p51-53 1993
Responds to an article by David Dewhurst which argued that self-esteem is not always related to comparisons between oneself and others. Contends that personal qualities such as kindness and generosity are as important in developing self-esteem as achievement and competence. Concludes that both approaches are necessary if students' self-esteem is to be raised. (CFR)
