5.0 out of 5 stars Profound and comprehensive.
Virtue ethics significantly altered my world-view when I was studying as an undergraduate. Stand-out chapter for me is "the Schizophrenia of Modern Moral thinking" by Stocker, run a close second my Rosalind Hursthouse's paper on abortion ethics.

I purchased again as preparation for my Masters and still enjoying it. A must have for students of ethics and...

I purchased again as preparation for my Masters and still enjoying it. A must have for students of ethics and especially those looking into Virtue ethics.

4.0 out of 5 stars covers the main debates in late 20th century ethics, 10 Dec 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Virtue Ethics (Oxford Readings in Philosophy) (Paperback)
ethics has moved away from action based formualtions of ethics (namely kantian ethics and utilitarianism), and has returned back to asking 'how we should live'. this has produced a return to the aristotloean concept of virtues. this book depicts this change in modern ethics and brings together essays that discuss the most important issues in modern virtue ethics.
crisp intriduction is a good summary of the whole book. it is clear that virtue ethics is still being formulated and so a lot of the content of this book i suspect will be rejected over time. despite this, this book is the best available in bringing together the debates that are currently going on.
in summary if you are studying or are interested in virtue ethics you have to buy this book, but be prepared to criticise what you read.
