Temperance: With a Consideration of Evil, Violence, and Pedagogy
Felderhof, Marius C.
Journal of Beliefs & Values, v30 n2 p145-158 Aug 2009
The article investigates the meaning of temperance by noting some cultural assumptions, raising the question as to why this classical virtue has largely disappeared from modern ethical discourse. By means of some historical notes temperance is identified as the unifying virtue in the person and in society. In its Christian form it is related to love of the transcendent goal of human life. By being similarly goal driven, education should consider the cardinal virtues and celebrate them through worship. (Contains 20 notes.)
