9780198751885: Virtue Ethics (Oxford Readings in Philosophy)

This volume brings together much of the most influential work undertaken in the field of virtue ethics over the last four decades. The ethics of virtue predominated in the ancient world, and recent moral philosophy has seen a revival of interest in virtue ethics as a rival to Kantian and utilitarian approaches to morality. Divided into four sections, the collection includes articles critical of other traditions; early attempts to offer a positive vision of virtue ethics; some later criticisms of the revival of virtue ethics; and, finally, some recent, more theoretically ambitious essays in virtue ethics.

Michael Slote is Professor of Philosophy at the University of Maryland. He is the author of From Morality to Virtue, and is currently collaborating with Marcia Baron and Philip Pettit on a book debating the merits of Kantian ethics, consequentialism, and virtue ethics.

Review:


"For those interested in the contemporary and ongoing developments in moral philosophy, this is an indispensable volume of essays....this volume brings together in one convenient and valuable form, some of the most important and influential writings on the subject of virtue theory from the last few decades....this volume is an important asset for those interested in that movement."--Teaching Philosophy
