Education shapes character, particularly through the liberal arts. This collection of essays explores the importance of moral education to the liberal arts and discusses how moral education fosters character development. The contributors examine the meaning of moral education, the rationale for promoting ethical values in an academic environment, and the conditions under which morality can best be taught. Though the text addresses philosophical issues, the essays focus on how the liberal arts institution can implement moral education to fulfill its objectives. The volume begins with a thoughtful consideration of how the liberal arts can embrace moral concepts. The study then overviews the place of moral education and the humanities in the contemporary world. The following essays show how moral education influences character development and how moral pluralism functions in academic culture. The book closes with essays on business ethics and the liberal arts and on the moral commitments of teachers. College administrators and educational philosophers will find this work valuable and insightful.
