What is the SMV Project?
The Self, Motivation & Virtue (SMV) Project was a 3-year research initiative supporting innovative, interdisciplinary research on the moral self. Its goal was to fund cutting-edge scholarship on virtue and moral development, with a special focus on exploring new ways of measuring virtue and how it develops in humans.
