Description: Virtue Ethics is a major approach to normative ethical theory that takes the consideration of character as fundamental to ethical reflection. Philosophers who seek an alternative to the main deontological and consequentialist traditions in modern moral theory have looked to this perspective, especially in the last twenty years. Virtue Ethics collects, for the first time, the main classical sources and the central contemporary expressions of this increasingly important tradition. In addition to Aristotle, the classical source of "nonmoral" virtue theory, it includes the esteem-based virtue ethics of Francis Hutcheson and David Hume. Contemporary virtue ethicists included are Philippa Foot, John McDowell, Alasdair MacIntyre, Annette Baier, Rosalind Hursthouse, and Michael Slote. There is also an important discussion of character and virtue by Gary Watson. Edited and introduced by Stephen Darwall, these readings are essential for anyone interested in normative theory.
