PHIL 5565 The Virtue of Justice (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

This course approaches these large questions by examining Aristotelian accounts of the virtue of justice, i.e. excellence in fulfilling one’s duties to others. In examining the virtue of justice, we will consider such questions as: In what ways is the virtue of justice different from the other virtues? Can a eudaimonistic outlook yield an acceptable account of our obligations to others? Does virtue ethics have anything distinctive to contribute to our understanding of deontic concepts?
