  1. Tending the Heart of Virtue: How Classic Stories Awaken a Child's Moral Imagination.Vigen Guroian - 2002 - Oup Usa.
    Vigen Guroian illuminates the complex ways in which fairy tales and fantasies educate the moral imagination from earliest childhood. Examining a wide range of stories - from "Pinocchio" and "The Little Mermaid" to "Charlotte's Web", "The Velveteen Rabbit", "The Wind in the Willows", and the "Chronicles of Narnia" - he argues that these tales capture the meaning of morality through vivid depictions of the struggle between good and evil, in which characters must make difficult choices between right and wrong, or (...)

  5. Rallying the Really Human Things: Moral Imagination in Politics Literature & Everyday Lif.Vigen Guroian - 2005 - Intercollegiate Studies Institute.
    For Vigen Guroian, contemporary culture is distinguished by its relentless assault on the moral imagination.

    Human Rights and Modern Western Faith: An Orthodox Christian Assessment.Vigen Guroian - 1998 - Journal of Religious Ethics 26 (2):241-247.
    Against the view that commitment to human rights necessarily follows from Christianity, the author asserts that human rights thinking is alien to Eastern Orthodoxy. Two features of Orthodox theology-its Christology and its understanding of redemption-provide a platform for a critique of the weaknesses and dangers of contemporary human rights doctrine. The author concedes that the modern theories of human rights have been inspired by Christianity. He adds that a strongly dyophysitic accent in Western Christianity, however, has contributed to the Western (...)
