This paper argues that there was considerably more philosophy of action in moral theory before 1958 than there has been since. This is in part because Anscombe influenced the formation of 'virtue theory' as yet another position within normative ethics, and her work contributed to the fashioning of 'moral psychology' as an altogether distinct branch of moral philosophy.
