The Problem of Character

In van Hooft Stan (ed.), The Handbook of Virtue Ethics. Acumen Publishing. 418-429 (2014)
Abstract
I first summarize the main line of argument used by Harman and Doris against Aristotelian virtue ethics in particular. In section two I present what seems to me to be the most promising response to their argument. Finally in section three I briefly review and assess the other leading responses in the now sizable literature that has developed in this area.
