The Good Life of Teaching extends the recent revival of virtue ethics to professional ethics and the philosophy of teaching. It connects long-standing philosophical questions about work and human growth to questions about teacher motivation, identity, and development.
  • Makes a significant contribution to the philosophy of teaching and also offers new insights into virtue theory and professional ethics
  • Offers fresh and detailed readings of major figures in ethics, including Alasdair MacIntyre, Charles Taylor, and Bernard Williams and the practical philosophies of Hannah Arendt, John Dewey and Hans-Georg Gadamer
  • Provides illustrations to assist the reader in visualizing major points, and integrates sources such as film, literature, and teaching memoirs to exemplify arguments in an engaging and accessible way
  • Presents a compelling vision of teaching as a reflective practice showing how this requires us to prepare teachers differently

Keywords: Philosophy of Education, Teaching, professional ethics, philosophy of teaching, teacher motivation, identity, development, virtue theory, Alasdair MacIntyre, Charles Taylor, Bernard Williams, Hannah Arendt, John Dewey, Hans-Georg Gadamer
