VIRTUE ETHICS
Street, Dresden
Ernst Ludwig Kirchner (1908/1919)
 
 
The Ethics of Virtue”
 
James Rachels (1941-2003)
 
ACTION AND VIRTUE
Action ethics
focuses on the rightness and wrongness of 
obligations, rules,
and
actions.
Virtue ethics
focuses on
character traits
of the individual.
 
Accordingly, it is concerned with the question of 
what kind of  person
the individual should be.
Aristotle (384-322 B.C.E.) said that the
good 
person is the
virtuous
person. Thus, for Aristotle, ethics is concerned withthe virtues or what is virtuous.
For Aristotle, as for Socrates and Plato before him, thequestion is
what makes
a person virtuous, or “
What traits of character 
make one a good person?”
