After Kohlberg: Virtue ethics and the recovery of the moral self

Philosophical Psychology 9 (1):7 – 23 (1996)
Abstract
A resurgence of interest in virtue ethics has engendered new insight into the fundamental link between selfhood and morality. In contradistinction to the currently ascendant justice-reasoning research paradigm, it appears that a virtue ethics approach to moral psychology provides a theoretical framework which is amenable to the empirical investigation of the nature and formation of the moral self. Six primary features of virtue ethics are delineated with a unifying emphasis throughout on the inextricable link between virtue and moral selfhood. Questions and issues concerning the possibility of a psychology of virtue ethics are directly addressed throughout.
