B. Virtue Ethics > New: Routledge Companion to Virtue Ethics (Edited by Lorraine Besser-Jones, Michael Slote

Congrats to Routledge and Lorraine Besser-Jones, Michael Slote on this very solid new volume.

Product description

Virtue ethics is on the move both in Anglo-American philosophy and in the rest of the world. This volume uniquely emphasizes non-Western varieties of virtue ethics at the same time that it includes work in the many different fields or areas of philosophy where virtue ethics has recently spread its wings. Just as significantly, several chapters make comparisons between virtue ethics and other ways of approaching ethics or political philosophy or show how virtue ethics can be applied to "real world" problems.
