Article on Virtue Ethics at 1000-Word Philosophy
My article on virtue ethics is now up at 1000-Word Philosophy. I’m honoured to be able to contribute to this awesome project, which is bringing really accessible introductions on a wide range of fascinating philosophical topics. If you want to dive into an issue, it’s good to start there just to get your bearings, before heading deeper. I have enjoyed and learnt from a lot of the pieces on that page. I think many of them are great for launching an initial discussion in a philosophy classroom as well.
I want to add that the process of producing this piece was particularly rewarding. The editors provided in-depth comments on content and style that helped really lift the piece. It is rare to get such detailed and helpful feedback. I am very grateful for the time and energy they put into it.
