About the Authors
  • In popular opinion, gratitude means saying 'thank you'. While politeness and appreciation are certainly important, gratitude is a larger issue. Appropriately defined, it encompasses the strengthening of human relationships and qualifies as a moral virtue. This important and timely volume provides the conceptual framework for studying the development of gratitude, with a comprehensive and international set of authors approaching the topic from philosophical, psychological, and educational perspectives. The first section provides the theoretical underpinnings for the study of gratitude as a virtue. In the next section, the authors examine the ways in which gratitude develops, including key cross-cultural variations and some possible effects of its development. The final section then considers the links between parent and child gratitude and the ways in which parents and teachers can help to encourage gratitude, both in their everyday practices and by using literary texts.

    • Focuses on how gratitude develops, and what parents and teachers can do to encourage its development
    • Explores the importance of considering gratitude as a virtue, rather than simply as a positive emotion
    • Covers a variety of international perspectives on gratitude to highlight the cultural variability associated with its development

    Reviews & endorsements

    ‘This is a well-conceived and timely book that offers conceptual clarity to an area of research that is badly in need of coherence.' Larry Nucci, University of California, Berkeley

    'Tudge and Freitas deliver on a state-of-the-art compendium of our understanding of gratitude amidst all of its complexities. Each chapter systematically focuses on this topic across a wide range of theoretical frameworks, cultural and philosophical perspectives, and methodological approaches. The volume is certain to be an exemplary resource for scholars, practitioners, and curious readers alike.' Gustavo Carlo, University of Missouri
