Description In this paper, I present and analyze the key part of the discussion that arose between the authors inspired by psychological situationism and the advocates of the concept of moral character that appears in the Aristotelian thought tradition. At the heart of this discussion is the question of whether this concept remains adequate despite recent findings of social and cognitive psychology. Whether it represents a significant determinant of behavior, withstanding various factors such as social pressure, momentary mental settings or even just something quite simple like bad weather. Its significance then must be high enough for it to be meaningful to devote valuable resources to its cultivation in practice.
