Virtue of courage in the western philosophical tradition
Talbot School of Theology
What are the major descriptive categories of behaviour which we may readily observe in a ubiquitous manner? In this respect, the answer is rather obvious: efforts are put into either defending what exists to ensure its continuity or opting for change. Both approaches are valid and well known through observations of human behaviour and history. However, there is a lot of confusion owing to the continuous pressure for change abutting the resistance of the 'traditional'. Our contributors provided arguments for each approach where they clearly served a valid purpose. This book extensively covers the many aspects of personal survival and the therapeutic ways by which resilience can by promoted and fostered in individuals with varying degrees of mental, emotional and physical resources.
