New Directions from Philosophy, Psychology, and Theology

Edited by Christian B. Miller, R. Michael Furr, Angela Knobel, and William Fleeson

  • Features papers stemming from the work of the Character Project at Wake Forest University
  • Includes substantive contributions by theologians, philosophers, and psychologists, all writing for a general academic audience and not for specialists in their fields
  • Engages with controversial positions on character, especially the situationist view which questions whether traditional character traits like honesty and compassion even exist
  • Takes on controversial issues, such as veiling in Islamic societies and whether soldiers who commit terrible war crimes should be held morally responsible for their behavior
