Summary
"James Davison Hunter traces the death of character to the disintegration of the moral and social conditions that make character possible in the first place. The dilemma he uncovers in this bold, compelling book is especially acute in the realm of moral education, where society explicitly takes on the task of instilling enduring moral commitments and ideals within young people." "Hunter's broad historical, sociological and cultural inquiry offers a fundamental challenge to the dominant paradigms of moral understanding and the way that these play out in the crucible of moral education. The Death of Character refocuses the national debate over our moral culture - the nature of the problem and the possibilities for constructive response."--BOOK JACKET
