Ben-Porath, Sigal; Dishon, Gideon – Philosophical Inquiry in Education, 2015
Situationists have suggested that educational efforts to improve character and instill virtues should be abandoned, as individuals' behavior is predicted by contexts and situations rather than by character traits. More recently it has been suggested that civic education and especially the effort to cultivate civic virtues are ineffective for…
