    Virtues and Principles in Biomedical Ethics.Jorge L. A. Garcia - 2020 - Journal of Medicine and Philosophy 45 (4-5):471-503.
    In the seventh and most recent edition of their classic book, Principles of Biomedical Ethics, Tom Beauchamp and James Childress define a virtue as a character trait that is “socially valuable and reliably present” and a moral virtue as such a trait that is also both “dispositional” and “morally valuable”.
