  1. R. C. Miner (2008). What Does Obligation Add to Virtue-Descriptions? Some Uses of Anscombe's Law/Game Analogy. Christian Bioethics 14 (2):165-174.score: 870.0
    We can describe certain actions as defective in a particular virtue, for example, as “unjust” or “intemperate.” We can take the additional step of describing such actions as “morally wrong” or “contrary to moral obligation.” A key claim of Elizabeth Anscombe's “Modern Moral Philosophy” is that if we choose to describe virtue-defective actions as “morally wrong,” because we are “obliged” or “bound” or “required” not to do them, we are in fact taking an additional step and that this step stands (...)
