Virtue Ethics and Education from Late Antiquity to the Eighteenth Century
This book argues that premodern societies were characterised by the quest for Ÿvirtue.Œ The concept of virtue, complicated and much fought-over, permeated society, encouraging wisdom, courage, and justice, while simultaneously legitimising social hierarchies based on sex and nationality. By examining pedagogical texts, rituals, performances, and images, this book illuminates the evolution of virtue through time, helping readers understand the guiding principles of historical action.
