Knowing how to be good is immensely important. The same goes for knowing how to make others be good-otherwise known as 'moral enhancement'. John Harris explores the many varied approaches to moral enhancement, from setting a good example to imbibing mood-altering substances, and asks whether and to what extent moral enhancement is possible.
