About the Author

Kristjan Kristjansson is Professor of Character Education and Virtue Ethics, Jubilee Centre for Character and Virtues, University of Birmingham, UK.


"Kristjansson's book is a valuable contribution to moral education and a timely corrective to contemporary character education efforts. Even the skeptical reader may have the impression that his goals are achievable, and the many references to his ongoing work at the Jubilee Centre suggest that he will continue to show us how." - Matthew J. Hayden, Journal of Moral Education

"This highly informative and rigorous book gives the best available explanation of the importance and significance of Aristotelian character education, reminding readers that performance is not enough if it is not underpinned by moral virtue and providing a desirable social vision of flourishing individuals in a flourishing society." - SciMedNet

"Overall, Aristotelian Character Education answers many questions, rebuts many objections, and clarifies the strengths, weaknesses, and remaining challenges for ACE. It is an exceptionally useful, cross-disciplinary resource." - Howard J. Curzer, The Philosophical Quarterly

"It is difficult to find fault with Aristolian Character Education by Kristjan Kristjansson. In eight engagingly written and thoroughly researched chapters, he introduces the reader to Aristotelian character education, defends it against critics and develops a contemporary version in the spirit, if not always the letter, of Aristotle's virtue theory." - Nancy E. Snow, The University of Oklahoma, British Journal of Educational Studies
