Character Strengths & Virtues: A Handbook & Classification By Christopher Peterson, Martin Seligman
2004 | 800 Pages | ISBN: 0195167015 | PDF | 2 MB

"Character" has become a front-&-center topic in contemporary discourse, but this term does not have a fixed meaning. Character may be simply defined by what someone does not do, but a more active & thorough definition is necessary, one that addresses certain vital questions. Is character a singular characteristic of an individual, or is it composed of different aspects? Does character--however we define it--exist in degrees, or is it simply something one happens to have? How can character be developed? Can it be learned? Relatedly, can it be taught, & who might be the most effective teacher? What roles are played by family, schools, the media, religion, & the larger culture? This groundbreaking h&book of character strengths & virtues is the first progress report from a prestigious group of researchers who have undertaken the systematic classification & measurement of widely valued positive traits. They approach good character in terms of separate strengths-authenticity, persistence, kindness, gratitude, hope, humor, & so on-each of which exists in degrees.

Character Strengths & Virtues classifies twenty-four specific strengths under six broad virtues that consistently emerge across history & culture: wisdom, courage, humanity, justice, temperance, & transcendence. Each strength is thoroughly examined in its own chapter, with special attention to its meaning, explanation, measurement, causes, correlates, consequences, & development across the life span, as well as to strategies for its deliberate cultivation. This book dem&s the attention of anyone interested in psychology & what it can teach about the good life.
