Minding the Gap: Moral Ideals and Moral Improvement

New York, NY, USA: Oup Usa (2019)
  Copy   BIBTEX


The book is an exploration of how we narrow the gap between our moral ideals and our actual selves. It develops an account of moral improvement as a practical project requiring what Karen Stohr calls a "moral neighborhood." Moral neighborhoods are constructed through social practices that instantiate shared moral ideals in a flawed world.
