In this ground-breakiing collection of articles, ten respected philosophers discuss everyday virtues, including generosity of spirit, gratitude, hope, patience and trust. Martha C. Nussbaum describes the cognitive dimensions of compassion; Robert Solomon argues that love must have reasons; Eamonn Callan contends that patience has as much value as courage. Clifford Williams' Introduction places the virtues into the contemporary context and discusses each one treated in the book.
