The Wisdom Commons is structured around a set of character qualities or virtues that are valued across many secular and religious wisdom traditions. Virtues offer us one way to think about Universal Ethics, or our Shared Moral Core. The starting list came from the Virtues Project, with additions from Values In Action, world religions scholar, Huston Smith, and others. Which virtues are most important to you? When members choose a virtue as one of their top seven (My Seven), it's like voting. That virtue gets bigger in the cloud on the Wisdom Commons home page.
