JB News/Calls for Papers > New Collection: Virtues and their Vices (Timpe and Boyd (eds.) from OUP

Here is info on a diverse new Oxford U. Press collection, edited by Kevin Timpe and Craig A. Boyd

The broadest and most comprehensive treatment of individual virtues and vices in the contemporary literature

•Lays out the relationship between individual virtues and recent work in virtue ethics
•Covers the major categories of virtues (e.g., cardinal, epistemic, theological)
•Explores the role virtue plays in a wide spectrum of academic disciplines
•Essays throughout engage relevant literature in related disciplines (e.g., psychology, economics)

Virtues and Their Vices is the only extant contemporary, comprehensive treatment of specific virtues and, where applicable, their competing vices. Each of the essays, written exclusively for this volume, not only locates discussion of that virtue in its historical context, but also advances the discussion and debate concerning the understanding and role of the virtues. Each of the first four sections focuses on a particular, historically important class of virtues: the cardinal virtues, the capital vices (or 'seven deadly sins') and the corrective virtues, intellectual virtues, and the theological virtues. The final section discusses the role virtue theory and the virtues themselves play in a number of disciplines, ranging from theology and political theory to neurobiology and feminism. The treatment of the virtues in this present volume is sensitive to the historical heritage of the virtues, including their theological heritage, without paying undue attention to the historical and theological issues. Virtues and Their Vices engages contemporary philosophical scholarship as well as relevant scholarship from related disciplines throughout. It is a unique and compelling addition to the philosophical treatment of the virtues as well as their import in a wide spectrum of disciplines.
