Virtuous Emotions by Kristjan Kristjansson (English) Hardcover Book
Virtue ethics sees emotions as central to the good life. But how can emotions over which we have no control be virtuous or non-virtuous? And how can education develop those emotions? Kristjan Kristjansson explores the ways in which six emotions (awe, grief, jealousy, shame, gratitude, and pity) can be understood as virtuous and educable. Many people are drawn towards virtue ethics because of the central place it gives to emotions in the good life. Yet it may seem odd to evaluate emotions as virtuous or non-virtuous, for how can we be held responsible for those powerful feelings that simply engulf us? And how can we educate the young to manage their emotional lives?

Kristjan Kristjansson takes a close look at six emotions (awe, grief, jealousy, shame, gratitude, and pity) and explores the ways in which they can be understood as virtuous and educable. Kristjan Kristjansson is Deputy Director in the Jubilee Centre for Character and Virtues and Professor of Character Education and Virtue Ethics at the University of Birmingham. His interests lie in research on character and virtues at the intersection between moral philosophy, moral psychology, and moral education.

He has published six books on those issues. In 2011, Kristjansson was awarded the Asa Wright Award, the most prestigious award given annually to an Icelandic scholar. His Aristotelian Character Education (Routledge) was voted the best Education book published in the UK in 2015 by the Society for Educational Studies. 1: Introduction: Developing an Aristotelian Account of Virtuous Emotions 2: Emotions and Moral Value 3: Gratitude 4: Pity 5: Shame 6: Jealousy 7: Grief 8: Awe 9: Educating Emotions 10: Conclusions and Afterthoughts.

And how can education help us to manage our emotional lives?

The aim of this book is to offer readers a new Aristotelian analysis and moral justification of a number of emotions that Aristotle did notmention (awe, grief, and jealousy), or relegated, at best, to the level of the semi-virtuous (shame), or made disparaging remarks about (gratitude), or rejected explicitly (pity, understood as pain at another person's deserved bad fortune). He reflects in depth on the salient concerns he brings up in the main body of the text and offers questions for further consideration... Lack, CHOICE This methodology results in a book which has immense value as a learning tool... Philosophy, and very specially Ancient Philosophy, is in dire need to reach out of its own boundaries, and Kristjnsson does that brilliantly.
