Centre Members Contribute to New International Handbook

Four members of the Centre have contributed chapters to the new Routledge International Handbook of Multidisciplinary Perspectives on Character Development edited by Michael D. Matthews and Richard M. Lerner. Professors Andrew Peterson and Kristján Kristjánsson authored a chapter titled ‘The Philosophical Foundations of Character Virtue Development‘, Emeritus Professor James Arthur authored a chapter titled ‘The Jubilee Centre for Character and Virtues’, and Professor Tom Harrison (with Edward Brooks) authored a chapter titled ‘Character Development in Higher Education’.

Drawing from philosophy, religion, biology, behavioural and social sciences, and the arts, the Routledge International Handbooks of Multidisciplinary Perspectives on Character Development, Volumes I and II, present cutting-edge scholarship about the concept of character across the life span, the developmental and contextual bases of character, and the key organizations of societal sectors, within and across nations, that promote character development in individuals, families, and communities.
