Critique of Virtue Ethics

Chapter
Part of the SpringerBriefs in Ethics book series (BRIEFSETHIC)

Abstract

In the last few chapters it has been argued that the life of virtue is the best, happiest and most desirable life. Even accepting that, one might wonder whether or not it is possible to have this life. This chapter will address some of those concerns and elaborate on the habituation process and the importance of role models, i.e. methods through which the virtues are instilled.
