The Pursuit of Virtue

The Union of Moral Psychology and Ethics


Barry R. Arnold

This book offers an antidote to the modern demise of virtue. While greatly admiring the contributions of Alasdair MacIntyre's After Virtue, Professor Arnold moves beyond his critique to the construction of a positive psychology of virtue. Rapprochement among moral philosophy, moral psychology, and theological ethics is Arnold's most innovative contribution toward the amelioration of the demise. Students and scholars of philosophy, theology, psychology, psychiatry, and the humanities will find this book particularly helpful and hopeful.
Contents: Arnold uniquely intertwines moral philosophy, moral psychology, theological ethics. A creative antidote to the modern demise of virtue.
