Sponsored by the Templeton Religion Trust

University of Notre Dame London Gateway
Over the last several decades, virtue has attracted increased attention from philosophers, theologians, and psychologists. However, little of this research on virtue has attended to the development and function of virtue within scientific research and practice.

This conference will showcase the team’s findings, and we welcome proposals for contribute papers to enhance these discussions.
