This volume examines whether virtue can be taught. In so doing, Marion Montgomery discusses the relation of virtue to the individual and describes ways in which modern thought has eroded our perception of virtue, as well as the impact this has on the family and education. Throughout the text are examples ranging from classical literature to football.
Marion Montgomery, poet, novelist, critic and philosopher, is one of the foremost interpreters of the spiritual crisis of modernity. He is well known for his inquiries into the sources of ideology and for his analysis of modern gnosticism. Co-published with the Intercollegiate Studies Institute.
