Aristotelian Ethical Theory


Description

The first part of the course is on modern, neo-Aristotelian virtue ethics, concentrating on its account of right action, moral dilemmas and the relevance of the emotions. The rest is an advanced study of its origin, namely Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics, concentrating on his views on what the virtues, rationality and happiness or well-being consist in.
