PHIL 7713 Virtue and Action (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

This course treats the moral virtues and vices, especially in their relationship with right action, obligation, and supererogation in, for example, virtuous/vicious action, acting virtuously/viciously, performing an act of virtue/vice, being virtuous/vicious in doing something, its being virtuous/vicious of someone to perform an action, and so on. We will discuss objective and subjective accounts of the virtues and vices, intention-sensitivity, and treat output-driven, input-driven, and mixed accounts of duty.
