Attachment, Virtue and the Regulation of Emotion

Internationale Tagung unter Leitung von Dr. Edward Harcourt (Oxford) und Prof. Dr. Christof Rapp (LMU).

25.02.2016 – 26.02.2016

What is the relationship between attachment and the virtues and vices of character? What are the implications of the answer for characterfocused public policy? This conference is the first in a projected series of three meetings designed to address these questions. Since Aristotle said that "to experience [an emotion] at the right time, toward the right objects, toward the right people, for the right reason, and in the right manner: that is … a mark of virtue", and the capacity successfully to regulate emotion is also associated with security of attachment, the regulation of emotion is a natural point at which to initiate the wider investigation.

Teilnehmer sind u.a.: Jay Belsky (UC Davis), Jude Cassidy (University of Maryland), Julien Deonna (Genf), Terence Irwin (Oxford), Jen Lexmond (London), Mario Mikulincer (Herzlia).
