Feb 26 2016 67 mins  
What is the relationship between attachment and the virtues and vices of character? What are the implications of the answer for characterfocused public policy? This conference is the first in a projected series of three meetings designed to address these questions. Since Aristotle said that "to experience [an emotion] at the right time, toward the right objects, toward the right people, for the right reason, and in the right manner: that is … a mark of virtue", and the capacity successfully to regulate emotion is also associated with security of attachment, the regulation of emotion is a natural point at which to initiate the wider investigation. | Center for Advanced Studies LMU: International Conference "Attachment, Virtue and the Regulation of Emotion" | 25.-26.02.2016
