Prichard and the Ethics of Virtue, Notes on a Footnote

The Monist 54 (1):1-17 (1970)
In this paper I tee off from a footnote in prichard's article, "is moral philosophy based on a mistake?" in it he contrasts living under the aegis of moral obligation and moral goodness with living under the aegis of virtue. Using prichard's terms I try to say what an ethics of virtue as versus one of duty and moral goodness would be like. Then I try to see what prichard's case against the former and for the latter would be like, And to indicate my own sympathies in the matter
