  1. Teaching phronesis to aspiring police officers: some preliminary philosophical, developmental and pedagogical reflections.Kristján Kristjánsson - 2022 - International Journal of Ethics Education 7 (2):289-305.
    According to Aristotle, the crucial meta-virtue of phronesis is cultivated through teaching and experience. But he remains mostly silent on the details of this developmental picture and its educational ramifications.
