Book description

Virtue ethics has emerged from a rich history, in which both Aristotle and Aquinas have played an important role, to become one of the fastest-growing fields in contemporary ethics. In this volume of newly commissioned essays, leading moral philosophers offer a comprehensive overview of virtue ethics. They examine the theoretical structure of virtue ethics and its place in contemporary moral theory and other topics discussed include the history of virtue-based approaches to ethics, what makes these approaches distinctive, what they can say about specific practical issues and where we can expect them to go in the future. This Companion will be useful to students of virtue ethics and the history of ethics and to others who want to understand how virtue ethics is changing the face of contemporary moral philosophy.


'I would like to recommend this volume to students of philosophy and those philosophers looking for a general introduction into virtue thought. Especially, the historic part, I find well put together and helpful. This is indeed an important contribution to the growing and diversifying field of virtue ethics.'

Ludwig Jaskolla Source: Metapsychology Online Reviews

'Every philosophy research library should own a copy of this book … Highly recommended. Upper division undergraduates through researchers/faculty.'

R. White Source: Choice

‘Although I would mostly recommend this book to upper-division undergraduates or beginning graduate students, some of the essays in specific areas or traditions may be of interest even to advanced scholars, due to their approach, which includes areas less discussed in more traditional accounts, such as Chinese philosophy or business virtue ethics. Moreover, its focus on contemporary research on virtue ethics makes this book a particularly valuable resource to ethics scholars with different levels of expertise.’
