During the week of 16th May 2016, the Jubilee Centre was delighted to welcome Blaine Fowers as a Distinguished Visiting Professor for 2016. Blaine, who is Professor of Counseling Psychology at the University of Miami, focuses his work on the contributions of Aristotle’s ethics to a richer understanding of research and clinical practices in psychology and of ordinary life.
Blaine recorded a blog on ‘Reasoning Social Creatures – a psychological approach’, in which he describes his 20 years of work in the area of Aristotelian virtue ethics, from a psychological perspective.
During his visit he had the opportunity to meet with the Centre’s researchers to discuss projects and delivered a seminar titled ‘How Can Humans Flourish as Dependent, Vulnerable Creatures? The Necessity of Virtue‘ as part of the Centre’s bi-weekly seminar series. The paper is available to view here. Blaine has also written for the Centre’s Insight Series; the paper titled ‘The Accidental Virtue Scholar’ is available to view here.
