The UNC Greensboro Department of Philosophy presents a talk by Dr. Christian Miller, the A.C. Reid Professor of Philosophy at Wake Forest University and Director of The Honesty Project.

Honesty is a perfectly familiar virtue. It is also widely accepted as a virtue.

Yet philosophers have almost completely neglected honesty in their work on the virtues. In this talk, Miller will provide the first account of the virtue of honesty in at least fifty years. He will also consider what the account can say about the Nazi at the door cases.

Finally, he will end by sketching the motivational profile of an honest person. Hopefully, this work will help to foster new interest in this stunningly neglected virtue.
