Virtues and Passions in Literature: Excellence, Courage, Engagements, Wisdom, Fulfilment
Tymieniecka, A. (Ed.) (2007). Virtues and Passions in Literature: Excellence, Courage, Engagements, Wisdom, Fulfilment, Hanover, NH: Springer, 2007
Paradoxically, our human virtues that maintain our societal fabric, emerge from passional grounds/sources in individual existence. It is the Human Condition that prompts our creative strivings beyond the natural round of life toward outstanding achievements. Our full possibilities allow our singular existence: excellence of individual character, courage, engagement, and wisdom to unfold. The transformations that the virtues work with a timing of human progress, never entirely accomplished, lift us toward personal fulfilment.
