From the Publisher“The editors of this book provide a valuable service by pulling together the research on dispositional/personality factors related to morality. The diverse chapters, written by a group of outstanding researchers and theorists, include an overview on what is known about this important topic, delineate various frameworks for conceptualizing the relevant issues, and raise important questions for future work. This book is a must-read for anyone interested in morality and moral development and may convince more personality researchers to study morality.”
– Nancy Eisenberg, Arizona State University
“Moral personality has been largely a moribund topic since the classic 1930s research of Hartshorne and May, and the critique of trait theories provided in the 1960s by Walter Mischel. In this volume, Narvaez and Lapsley, two developmental psychologists, have brought together a rich and current collection of well-written chapters in an effort to reconnect morality with theories of personality, narrative psychology, and social psychology. This book is an excellent read and belongs on the shelf of anyone with a serious interest in moral psychology.”
– Larry Nucci, University of California, Berkeley
"The essays in Personality, Identity, and Character: Explorations in Moral Psychology originated in 2006 and 2008 invited symposia on moral personality at Notre Dame, as part of a continuing effort to find the way forward for the science of moral development in the wake of the Kohlberg paradigm. The contribution by Augusto Blasi at the end of this volume is worth the price of the book—and a must read for anyone working in moral psychology..."
