The moral upbringing gap

Duane Long, Buffalo, reviews Aristotle on shame and learning to be good by Marta Jimenez at Bryn Mawr Classical Review.
"While it is plausible enough that one could do virtuous actions without the relevant virtue (for instance under guidance), it is less obvious how one could do a virtuous action from the same motive as a virtuous person if one is not yet virtuous oneself. This problem, which motivates the entire book, Jimenez calls the moral upbringing gap."

See Aristotle, Great Books of the Western World (first edition, 52 Vol., 1952) volumes 8-9, (second edition, 60 Vol., 1990) volumes 7-8.
