Aristotle on Shame and Learning to Be Good

Oxford University Press (2020)

Abstract

This book presents a novel interpretation of Aristotle's account of how shame instils virtue, and defends its philosophical import. Shame is shown to provide motivational continuity between the actions of the learners and the virtuous dispositions that they will eventually acquire.
