PHIL 50.23 Virtue Ethics

Contemporary virtue ethics arises out of a long and illustrious history in which ethics focuses on moral character traits. Do virtues (e.g. honesty, courage) exist? If so, what are they? Are they dispositions grounded in nature, traits acquired by education and training, or some combination of both? How are virtues related to practical deliberation, action and emotions? How are virtues related to human flourishing? How promising is virtue ethics relative to other approaches in normative ethics?

Distributive and/or World Culture


The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
