Virtue Ethics and Moral Education by David Carr and Jan Steute pdf free download. A long road has been travelled towards the realization of this project. Indeed, the possibility of assembling a collection of essays along these lines was first discussed by the editors on a rainy night in Amsterdam as long ago as January 1994.

The editors already shared a long-standing interest in virtue ethics, especially in possible applications of virtue theory to problems about moral education. In this connection, the need for an exploratory volume of moral educational essays specifically focused on virtue theory seemed pressing; for despite growing recognition in mainstream philosophy of virtue ethics as a serious rival to utilitarianism and Kantian deontology—not to mention widespread contemporary educational philosophical interest in the work of such philosophers as Aristotle and Alasdair MacIntyre—relatively few educational philosophers to date have focused directly upon the practical implications of virtue ethics for moral education.

Compared with the wealth of literature produced over the years on research into moral cognition, for example, work on the moral educational applications of virtue ethics has been scarcely more than a drop in the ocean, despite the fact that the post-war revival of interest in the virtues was more or less coincident with the outset of Kohlberg’s influential research programme.

All the same, when the idea was first broached, enthusiasm for the project was mixed with doubt, and Steutel’s optimism had to contend with Carr’s scepticism. In a general climate of declining publishing interest in educational philosophy and theory in general, this topic could hardly appear other than recherché.

Indeed, although the eventual publishers of this collection had retained enough faith and commitment to the general importance of educational philosophy to launch a new research series on the philosophy of education, the would-be editors were aware that other important work on, or related to, moral education had already been commissioned for this series.

This threatened to weaken rather than increase the chances of acceptance of an additional work on a fairly specific approach to moral education. Thus, it is to the enormous credit of Routledge that they did not need strenuously persuading of the potential interest and significance of a work of this kind, and the editors remain extremely grateful for the eventual warm reception of their proposal.
