The Integrating Function of Virtue
Conference in English, in person or online
The conference will address the concept of virtue as a factor integrating human activity, and its involvement in improving social life. Virtue is a fundamental element of the social capital and is a system of values that not only enables, but also improves cooperation between people. Mechanisms of the integrating function of virtue will be explored, which include the coherence of human activities and the involvement of such functions in family and community life.
