Prof. Kristján Kristjánsson publishes new papers 2nd May 2014 Academic Publications

Professor Kristján Kristjánsson, Deputy Director (Research) for the Jubilee Centre for Character and Virtues, has published two new papers.  The first, published in the Journal of Moral Education, is titled 'Undoing bad upbringing through contemplation: An Aristotelian reconstruction' and aims to reconstruct two counter-intuitive Aristotelian theses—about contemplation as the culmination of the good life and about the impossibility of undoing bad upbringing—to bring them into line with current empirical research, as well as with the essentials of an overall Aristotelian approach to moral education.  The full paper can be found here.

The second, published in Theory and Research in Education, is titled 'Phronesis and moral education: Treading beyond the truisms' and aims to repair the dearth of attention given to phronesis in moral education circles and to bring considerations from other, but related, discourses (such as general Aristotelian scholarship and wisdom studies in psychology) to bear on it.  The full paper can be found here.
