This collection of essays and other materials grows from a series of interdisciplinary projects involving more than 150 faculty and a significant number of students from Mercer Universitys 11 colleges and schools between 2005 and 2010. The book explores the relevance to contemporary education of a number of Aristotelian convictions. Authentic human flourishing in community with others requires good character-- the acquisition of an ensemble of deeply ingrained knowledge, skills, and dispositions by which a person makes good decisions that promote the good. The development of good character, practical wisdom, and sense of identity occurs across all levels of education: preK-12, undergraduate, graduate, professional, and continuing education. his book calls all educators to join together across disciplines and institutions to foster practical wisdom throughout the educational continuum.
