Curiouser and Curiouser: The Virtue of Wonder.
Fisher, Kathleen M.
Journal of Education, v182 n2 p29-35 2000
Invites college professors to look at curiosity as an operative, intellectual virtue giving impetus to the moral lives of students. Addresses the objection that professors are simply too specialized in their professional content areas to help students develop virtue, asserting that curiosity well fostered promotes a set of other moral virtues, including humility and charity.
