9780739120309: Prostitutes, Musicians, and Self-Respect: Virtues and Vices of Personal Life

In Prostitutes, Musicians, and Self-Respect, Joseph H. Kupfer turns a critical eye to the personal virtues and vices that pervade daily life but are easily and frequently overlooked. Unlike public virtues such as courage and patriotism, the personal virtues of humility, generosity, gratitude, and patience do not have particular occasions on which they shine forth and are celebrated, but rather are in continuous use in our interactions with other people and our relationship with ourselves. Kupfer contrasts these personal virtues with the vices of sentimentality, envy, ingratitude, and impatience. At the core of the discussion of personal virtues and vices lies the theme of self-knowledge and self-respect.
This intimate conversation of virtues and vices is of interest to scholars and students of ethics, moral psychology, and religion, as well as the general academic reader.

About the Author:

Joseph H. Kupfer is professor of philosophy at Iowa State University.

Review:

Joseph Kupfer's book is an impressive achievement, full of insights about contemporary moral psychology, examining humility, sentimentality, patience, romantic love, sexuality, prostitution, and other such topics. Kupfer's original work on personal virtues and vices will motivate the reader to join in the author's vibrant renewal of ethical reflection about selfhood. (Edward Sankowski, University of Oklahoma)

Kupfer's book is delightfully clear, down-to-earth, and valuable reading for undergraduates and moral theorists alike. His focus on the personal virtues and vices, so crucial to the texture of everyday life, is a great contribution to our self-understanding. (Drew Leder, Loyola College in Maryland)
