The greek word ARETÉ means excellence, virtue, and refers to the need of each individual to accomplish its end – its essence – in the world. Areté, the book collection of the Institute of Public Policy Thomas Jefferson-Correia da Serra, proposes to make available to the public works in three major areas: Economics, Political Science and Political Philosophy, as well as in other relevant scientific areas such as Law, Sociology, or History. More than merely academic texts, we intend to publish works that have practical relevance to the issues of our time.
The Areté collection results from a partnership between IPP and Almedina. Through this book collection, the Institute of Public Policy hopes to contribute to a broader, freer, and better-informed public debate.
