This was a very stimulating and well-organized conference, to bring the Character Project to its conclusion. Congrats to all the Character Project Team Members.

Hope is for a continuation of the excellent work of the Project, based at Wake Forest. The Project still expects to soon publish a large edited collection of project papers under the title, Character: New Directions from Philosophy, Psychology, and Theology from Oxford University Press.
