Summary

Chapter summarizes how the limited available research on our proposed four components of virtue (behavior, knowledge, motivation/emotion, and practical wisdom) has been generally consistent with STRIVE-4 Model predictions. Observed behavior and motivation/emotion have been studied to some extent, but little research has evaluated virtue knowledge or practical wisdom. Like other areas of virtue scholarship, these four components are often studied in isolation, preventing a holistic understanding of virtues. Although the available evidence is consistent with these four components, the chapter suggests that an important step forward in virtue science is integrating the four components for a more complete understanding of virtue. To connect virtue science with neurophysiology, the chapter concludes by highlighting the limited work on the interface of virtue and neurophysiology.
