New Report: Phronesis: Developing a Conceptualisation and an Instrument

The Jubilee Centre has published Phronesis: Developing A Conceptualisation and an Instrument. The aim of the research presented in this report was to explore the role that phronesis plays in bridging the gap between moral knowledge and action in developed moral agents and to develop an instrument that measures phronesis and its development. Key findings in the report include that over two pilot studies fit the hypothesised phronesis model well; that latent components were found to be structurally related to a predicted latent phronesis  variable and promisingly that this variable was found to predict the latent prosocial behaviour variable; and that the proposed phronesis model may have validity in both adolescent and adult samples which has important implications for solving the ‘gappiness’ problem.
