WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – What exactly is good character, and how can character be improved?

That’s the task of a team of Wake Forest University researchers who have won a $3.67 million grant from the John Templeton Foundation for the Character Project.

"When we think about how to understand human behavior, one of the first things we tend to mention is someone’s character and character traits such as honesty, courage or laziness," said Philosophy Professor Christian Miller. "We are very excited about using the complementary perspectives of psychology, philosophy, and theology to better understand what our characters are like and how we can improve ourselves as persons."

Miller, and Psychology Professors William Fleeson and Michael Furr will lead the project.
