Following the classical idea of liberal arts and sciences education that education is not only about transferring knowledge but also, and perhaps even more so, about personal development, this volume seeks to advance the discussion of character education at the level of the university, addressing the varying ways in which the reading of core texts contributes to the development of character of students and teachers in higher education. Literature and Character Education in Universities will be of great interest to researchers, academics and post-graduate students in the field of character education, philosophy of education, literature and education and higher education.

The volume is co-edited by Emma Cohen de Lara (Amsterdam University College) and includes contributions from, among others, Tessa Leesen and Alkeline van Lenning (University College Tilburg).
