Well-being and virtue
|Abstract||A critique of perfectionist accounts of well-being, focusing on Aristotelian theories. While such views have more going for them than most critics have realized, virtue or excellence still forms no fundamental part of well-being. Seeing why illuminates interesting points about the nature of well-being. Draft 6/12/07; a revised version is forthcoming in the Journal of Ethics and Social Philosophy (comments most welcome; was titled “Aristotelian Virtue and the Nature of Well-Being”).|
