An introduction to Virtue Ethics
My anti-choice students often accuse women who get abortions of being selfish. Note that this introduces a radically different approach to ethical arguments, often called virtue ethics. Instead of talking about rights and justice, we are now talking about character. Instead of talking about laws and rules, we are talking about human personalities, and what human characteristics are admirable or despicable.
