This volume brings together much of the most influential work undertaken in the field of virtue ethics over the last four decades. The ethics of virtue predominated in the ancient world, and recent moral philosophy has seen a revival of interest in virtue ethics as a rival to Kantian and utilitarian approaches to morality. Divided into four sections, the collection includes articles critical of other traditions; early attempts to offer a positive vision of virtue ethics; some later criticisms of the revival of virtue ethics; and, finally, some recent, more theoretically ambitious essays in virtue ethics.

Nearly all the papers in this collection are already widely recognized as the modern classics of virtue ethics — or the classics of the modern virtue ethics. The intro by Profs. Crisp and Slote is also valuable. If you wish to be informed about the developments in contemporary moral philosophy, you should buy and study this book.
