Category Archives: Portraits of Integrity

This British Academy project (2014-2016) built a series of detailed portraits of historical, fictional, and contemporary figures whose lives raise questions about what integrity is and what it is worth, exploring through these different conceptions and corruptions of integrity. We plan to use these Portraits in our future philosophical work on integrity.

These portraits are now part of our Image Bank and we are working on a book of essays.
