Title: The Virtues of Fortitude in Goal Pursuit: How Perseverance, Patience, and Courage Might Promote Civic Goods
Abstract: In this talk, I will consider the complementary nature of several virtues of fortitude, including patience, courage, and perseverance, and how they might contribute to civic life. Connecting philosophical and psychological theory, I will highlight empirical findings suggesting that a goal pursuit framework is ideal for considering these virtues, and I will present how we might consider the employment of these virtues in important civics goals.
