(p.198) 9 Conclusion
The Reflective Life

Valerie Tiberius (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This concluding chapter begins with a discussion of the major aims of the book, which are to explore the contribution to living well made by us, by articulating the nature of reflective wisdom; and to show by example how Humean naturalists, who are committed to the empirical contingency of any normative theory, can nevertheless construct a genuinely normative theory. It argues that a theory of how to live that takes seriously the person's own point of view must be a theory that recommends ‘from the inside’ rather than imposing external imperatives. The Reflective Wisdom Account is discussed.

Keywords:   wisdom, living well, normative theory, Reflective Wisdom Account, reflective virtues
