This is an excellent collection of essays on the "moral psychology of admiration." Archer (Tilburg Univ., Netherlands) and Grahle (Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität, Germany), both philosophers, organize the essays into four parts: "The Nature of Admiration," "History," "Social and Political Dimensions of Admiration," and "Admiration and Moral Education." The contributors are mostly philosophy and psychology professors at European and American universities, but their expertise extends to a variety of other disciplines. This book could serve as textbook in courses on moral psychology. . . this is a worthwhile resource for those interested in admiration as an aspect of moral philosophy or moral psychology.
Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty.
