The Virtues: Theory and Common Sense in Greek Philosophy
Begins by setting out several common‐sense claims about the virtues—e.g. that they are separable or not good for the agent. Then proceeds to show how the main tendency of Greek ethics was to reject many of them. Focuses primarily on Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, and the Stoics.
