Overview

Unlike traditional accounts of Aristotelian virtue, the claim of this book is that excellence of character is not a habituated, affective state, but a state constituted by the operations of practical reason. In particular, the book considers four aspects of practical reason as they relate to character: moral perception, choicemaking, collaboration, and the development of those capacities in moral education. Throughout the book, the author is sensitive to contemporary moral debates,
and indicates the extent to which Aristotle's account of practical reason provides an alternative to theories of impartial reason. - ;Abbreviations; Introduction; Discerning particulars; The choices of a character; The shared life; The habituation of character -
