The ViEW Platform

Virtues in Education East and West

We are an interdisciplinary team of researchers based in the Education University of Hong Kong. We aim to develop high quality research that is multi-perspectival and multidisciplinary, with a focus on cross-cultural comparison. Our research is supported by funding from our university and local and international foundations.

In our work on the virtues we are like a team of arborists (tree researchers) and foresters (forest researchers). Trees and forests are complex structures that are incredibly varied from a global view, although most people only know about those around them. Like trees and forests, individual virtues, and virtues as a concept, can be studied from a variety of perspectives. Comparison helps us see our objects of study in new lights. 


From our Platform, we welcome others cut off from these sights to get a broader view.

 

Research

Through systematic investigations and team collaboration, we provide a base for understanding virtues across disciplines and social contexts, and paint in a richer picture of the meaning of virtues in diverse people’s lives.
