"Miller's book pair merits praise for the breadth of its empirically-informed approach to virtue ethics. And, hopefully, the philosophical work Miller's response-rich arguments will inevitably inspire will mirror his precision of writing and argumentation... a welcome addition to a body of literature whose development Miller's book pair significantly and compellingly advances." --Mind
"...Miller's writing is a model of philosophical clarity and readers who want to see how philosophy can be informed by psychology will want to read these books."
Featured in Philosophical Psychology
"I recommend the book as a resource for the work in psychology as it is relevant to virtue ethics. It would be a useful teaching aid in that it would both give students valuable new information and be personally enlightening to them. It would also provide much grist for excellent discussion." -- Philosophy in Review
"This book deserves careful analysis and will no doubt provoke attention and debate within the field of moral psychology. It is well-written and engaging; while he covers much territory, Miller makes the structure of his overall argument clear and seamless. He brings into philosophical discussion expansive empirical research on helping and presents this research with a critical eye, showing awareness throughout of the limitations of the research. Moral Character: An Empirical Theory is empirically-informed moral psychology at its best." -- Journal of Moral Philosophy
