Product Description


"Erudite and lucid, Jennifer Herdt''s comprehensive study of theological and secular virtue is exceptionally engaging . . . . A theologically rich, historically grounded, and philosophically challenging book. . . . that resembles the magisterial work of Charles Taylor."--Jonathan Rothchild, "Journal of Theological Studies"--Jonathan Rothchild "Journal of Theological Studies "

"In terms of both breadth and depth, Herdt''s book is a masterful treatise. Its originality and intrigue lie in two areas in particular. The first is her overall project of demonstrating how this tension of mimesis and performance lies at the heart of virtue-based morality. . . . The second area of originality is her specific retrieval of many thinkers who have often been overlooked in terms of what contribution they might make to contemporary discussions of virtue."--Tom Grimwood, "Metapsychology"--Tom Grimwood "Metapsychology "
