Our research project “Development of Human Values and Virtues” has passed the first stage of evaluation in the Self, Motivation and Virtue project ! At the next and final stage about ten research teams will be selected among 17. We now work on completing a full research proposal, on the basis of which we will be evaluated. Our project team is composed of both psychologists and philosophers: Ariel Knafo, Liat Hasenfratz, Arnon Levy, and I. I am excited about this combination of perspectives.Though it is not always easy to bridge the gaps. For instance, it took me some time to understand how psychologists use the term values (they view them as types of motivations).
