Overview

The essays in this volume discuss a range of questions relating to virtue ethics--a form of moral theory that has gained considerable attention in recent years. These questions include: What traits ought to be considered virtues? What is the proper place of virtue in a complete moral theory? Is it true, as the ancients thought, that there is a "unity of virtue," implying that to have virtue entails having all the others? What is the nature of vice or wickedness? Some of the essays in this volume explore the connection between virtue and flourishing or well-being, asking whether virtue is necessary or sufficient for leading a happy life. Some deal with specific virtues, such as pride or respect, or with the relationship between the virtues and emotions.
