This chapter sets forth the main aim of the book, viz. to argue that virtue ethics cannot survive without the thesis that phronesis, much as Aristotle conceived of it, is a crucial part of all the virtues, and that this thesis is defensible and attractive. It examines Aristotle's account of deliberation and phronesis in some detail. The chapter concludes by summarizing some of the main contemporary controversies surrounding the view that phronesis is necessary for virtue.

Keywords:   Aristotle, decision, deliberation, ends, goals, Nicomachean ethics, phronesis, practical intelligence, practical reasoning, unity of virtue
