Inner Virtue

Nicolas Bommarito

Abstract

What does it mean to be a morally good person? It can be tempting to think that it is simply a matter of performing certain actions and avoiding others. And yet there is much more to moral character than our outward actions. We expect a good person to not only behave in certain ways but also to experience the world in certain ways within.

Keywords: virtue, vice, emotion, attention, pleasure, character, action, mind, ethics
