This year’s Senior Seminar in Philosophy focused on virtue ethics. After considering
Aristotle’s classical version of this approach to the moral life, we examined a variety of
present-day approaches to an ethics of virtue (neo-Aristotelian, agent-based and
pluralist). We considered some of their most promising developments as well as some of
problems they face. Students will present and discuss papers that reflect the range of
questions pursued in our seminar.
