This book is a policy analysis of character education through the perspective of a number of academic disciplines. It is an in-depth interdisciplinary study of character education using philosophical, theological, political, and social scientific methodologies to gain insights into the policy implications of character education and its relationship with citizenship education. It employs a systematic review of literature in these diverse academic fields to highlight new questions and insights for moral education. It employs a theoretical and conceptual approach which has produced new insights into the study of character and was short-listed for the Society of Educational Studies Book Prize in 2004. The book’s definition of character education has made a contribution to the highly contentious debate on character education and the book is the basis of new empirical research by the author funded by the Templeton Foundation which has awarded the author £1,750,000 in 2007.
