Darcia Narvaez, a professor of psychology in Notre Dame’s College of Arts and Letters, and Nancy Snow, a professor of philosophy at Marquette University, are co-directing a new, interdisciplinary research initiative on virtue, character, and the development of the moral self.
The three-year project is supported by a $2.6 million grant from the Templeton Religion Trust, which funds “discoveries relating to the big questions of human purpose and ultimate reality.”
The “Self, Motivation, and Virtue” initiative will award seed funding to 10 new research proposals. The winning projects will use innovative research methods to explore how individuals develop virtue in their lives and how virtue can be cultivated.
