Radical Virtues: Moral Wisdom and the Ethics of Contemporary Life

White, Richard. Radical Virtues: Moral Wisdom and the Ethics of Contemporary Life. Lanham, MD: Rowman & Littlefield, 2008.

"What is a good life? What does it mean to be a good person? Richard White answers these questions by considering aspects of moral goodness through the virtues: courage, temperance, justice, compassion, and wisdom. White explores how moral virtues affect and support social movements such as pacifism, environmentalism, multiculturalism, and animal rights. Drawing on the classics, White includes historical and cross-cultural analysis and examines the lives of Socrates, Buddha, and Gandhi, who lived virtuous lives, to help the reader understand and acquire moral wisdom."
