From Morality to Virtue

Michael Slote

Abstract

There has been a recent revival of interest in virtue ethics. Some have asked for more attention to the virtues within the compass of familiar underlying approaches to morality like utilitarianism and Kantian ethics. However, others have argued that a freestanding and systematic form of virtue ethics would have advantages over other large‐scale approaches. The present work is the first to attempt such a systematic and freestanding or independent virtue ethics.

Keywords: freestanding, independent, Kantian ethics, revival, systematic, utilitarianism, virtue ethics
