    By Robert K. Batchelor, Published on 01/01/ Title. Book Review: Chi-Ming Yang, Performing China: Virtue, Commerce and Orientalism in Eighteenth-Century England, 1 day ago  The resulting book, Diana: Her True Story, would be dubbed the “longest divorce petition in British history,” and spend 18 weeks on the New York Times best-seller list.

    The reform party, and the reform movement more generally, led the demands for British intervention in the Crimea during and However, support for British intervention was not unconditional. Arguments in favour of intervention were based on a set of interrelated expectations. For most of the reform party and the reform movement, the Crimean War came to revolve around the tension. Character Strengths and Virtues (CSV) is a book by Christopher Peterson and Martin Seligman () listing virtues in a modern, empirical, and rigorously scientific manner. The introduction of CSV suggests that these six virtues are considered good by the vast majority of cultures and throughout history.

    The Nichomachean Ethics was written at the same time, wasn’t it?. A little later. Aristotle was Plato’s most famous student. It’s not nearly as readable as the Symposium: it’s dense and obscure in places and you really do have to struggle with it, but it is a sophisticated and subtle analysis of the various virtues: courage, temperance, and wisdom among many others.   The wisest people in history have always known that good literature is a school of virtue. In rediscovering the art of reading well, we can recover our sense of virtue, too.
