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."
