Virtue Ethics
PHIL 332
Fall 2006 not offered

In the last several decades, some contemporary ethicists have revived interest in the virtues, which had been at the heart of ancient and medieval philosophy. Some of these ethicists promote "virtue ethics" as a third alternative theory to utilitarianism and Kantianism. Others simply wish to make room for the virtues of various existing ethical theories. This seminar is a study of recent work on the virtues.
