Character Improvement

VirtueScience is the deep study of character-the virtues and vices. It is concerned with understanding the mechanism of character change so that it may be harnessed for the good of the individual and society. It recognizes a symmetrical matrix of virtues which can be used as an ideal transcultural blueprint for character.
