    Abstract:
    This is a review of a book which in today's COVID 19 world takes up issues which could have been neglected as meant only for scholars when this book was published. Now with homeschooling and social distancing and race relations going for a toss all over the world; we need to relook virtue and how to cultivate that in our lives and in our children. This review looks at the philosophical, theological and psychological qualia of virtue. For instance, this reviewer connects the virtue-problem with linguistic qualia. In the process he discusses the psychologist Darcia Narvaez. Humanities has no future unless we fend off the rise of the inhuman in the form of social distancing and contactless delivery with the study of virtue. Thus, this is deposited here.
    Notes:
    This book was written in a pre COVID 19 world; & this reviewer read it during a pre-Covid world. Then he realised the need for this book in today's world where kids are being homeschooled. The Ramakrishna Mission which published this review in their Order's mouthpiece; has the financial resources to keep this review alive when probably this site too will no longer be there.
