What is virtue? Why does it matter? It seems we live in an age that doesn’t know exactly how seriously it should take virtue. We seem more intent on signaling it than we do on living it. There’s a lot of confusion around the concept, so in this seminar we will examine historical understandings of the virtue, discuss what virtues are essential to leadership and citizenship, and consider criticisms of misplaced virtue.
