Gus Blasi’s contributions to the field of moral psychology have been hugely
significant, and a Festschrift is more than appropriate and timely. It is a privi-
lege to contribute to this volume honoring him, especially because his thinking
on several issues has been very influential inmy own research over the years; it
is a joy to join in recognizing someone whose personal and professional life
has so clearly exemplified the aspects of moral identity and personality that he
has studied in his own work.
