TheCharacter Strengths and Virtues handbook of human strengths and virtues reflects the work of researchers in the Values in Action Classification Project (VIA), which has undertaken a systematic classification and measurement of universal strengths and virtues.
The handbook begins with the background of the VIA classification scheme and defines terms before describing in thorough detail the current state of knowledge with respect to each of the 24 character strengths in the classification.
- Temperance – strengths that protect against excess
- Transcendence - strengths that forge connections to the larger universe and provide meaning
