BiblioFiles #33: Educating for Virtue
In the circles we run in, it is pretty commonly accepted that one of the end goals of education is virtue. But how is that achieved? And what is "virtue" anyway? Today we sit down at the BiblioFiles table to consider what we think of this educational project and whether or not we agree. We look at the classical and Christian roots of this discussion, and the sometimes unacknowledged tension between the two traditions.
