This collection of thirteen specially commissioned essays marks the first venture of sociology into the terrain of virtue ethics, one of the most important and expanding aspects of contemporary philosophy. Set in relation to ideas of modernity and postmodernity, the collection works from a variety of religions- Catholicism, Protestantism, Quakerism, Islam and the New Age - to consider attributes of virtue, around the status of the person, celibacy, hope, mouring and moral ambiguity. Maclntyre, Bauman, Weber, Durkheim and Giddens from the focal points of debate on the significance of virtue for sociology as it seeks to think past postmodernity. The range of topics and issues covered makes this an indispensable collection for sociologists, one that marks a shift and expansion of concerns from those of the self, identity and ethics to issues of character, morality and traits denoted as those of virtue.
