    1. The Past Meets the Future: How to Bring Confucian Virtues into Higher Ed with Educational Technology

      The authors discuss the alignment of virtues with educational technology. There is a discussion about using technology to allow students to interact with each other and create educated people who respect culture and ethics. Students can be guided to think about moral consequences of technology before using it. Reading about how Confucianism aligns with educational technology was interesting and even if teachers do not agree with it completely, it is still a new perspective to consider. The site is not peer-reviewed but the authors do have experience in the topics discussed. 8/10

    1. To develope the reasoning faculties of our youth, enlarge their minds cultivate their morals, & instil into them the precepts of virtue & order

      I find it interesting that the University made it a goal to cultivate the morals of the students attending their school. They also stress how they want to instill the precepts of virtue and order. They want to achieve this, yet they based the location of their school to be around the centrality of the white population. I do not believe this is cultivating the morals of their students. This is narrowing their viewpoints, and not expanding on the multitude of cultures that lie within the United States.

    1. The above is a sufficient account, for our present purpose, of virtue and vice in general, and of their various forms.

      Aristotle's "virtue and vice".

    2. Prudence is that virtue of the understanding which enables men to come to wise decisions about the relation to happiness of the goods and evils that have been previously mentioned.
    3. Magnanimity is the virtue that disposes us to do good to others on a large scale; [its opposite is meanness of spirit]. Magnificence is a virtue productive of greatness in matters involving the spending of money. The opposites of these two are smallness of spirit and meanness respectively.
    4. Liberality disposes us to spend money for others' good; illiberality is the opposite.

      Liberality: Thrift as opposed to "Scrooge".

    5. Next comes liberality; liberal people let their money go instead of fighting for it, whereas other people care more for money than for anything else.

      Interesting to see liberty and liberalism defined.

    6. Justice is the virtue through which everybody enjoys his own possessions in accordance with the law; its opposite is injustice, through which men enjoy the possessions of others in defiance of the law.

      Justice defined as possessions rightly enjoyed.

    7. Temperance is the virtue that disposes us to obey the law where physical pleasures are concerned; incontinence is the opposite.

      Tempering rather than pissing on, or away?
