Dan MalotkeyGREENSBORO, N.C. – Dan Malotky, Lucy H. Robertson Professor of Religion, Ethics and Philosophy at Greensboro College, has published a chapter in a new book on theologian Reinhold Niebuhr and virtue.

The book, “Paradoxical Virtue: Reinhold Niebuhr and the Virtue Tradition,” edited by Kevin Carnahan and David True, is published by Routledge. Many of its essays focus on virtue ethics – emphasizing the role of character and virtue in moral philosophy – but disagree as to whether Niebuhr’s ethics should be considered a form of, or an alternative to, virtue ethics.

Malotky’s chapter pertains to Niebuhr’s approach to myth as a key to understanding a Niebuhrian approach to virtue.

Malotky, also dean of the college’s School of Humanities and chairman of the Department of Religion, Ethics and Philosophy, holds a B.A. from St. Olaf College and an M.A. and Ph.D. from the University of Chicago. He joined the faculty in 2003.
