Evaluating Virtue Ethics – Speed Review According to Aristotle… Q: What is the final end of all human activity? A: Happiness, human flourishing, Eudaimonia; the best account of it. Q: How do we achieve Eudaimonia (human flourishing)? A: By acting in a virtuous manor. Q: How do you determine how to act in a situation? A: Doctrine of the mean. Ethical Role Model: Virtuous Ethics= A virtuous act is just what a virtuous person would do. For example, WWJD a virtuous person might live by “What Would Jesus Do?” to keep them doing the virtuous actions in a situation, same thing with Gandhi. What is the role of reason, feeling and action in this view? Giving money two a hobo is not virtuous is you didn’t think about it, you just did it. For example, why do I care about __________, for happiness? Applying Criteria of Moral Adequacy: Consistency with considered judgment- something that’s been thought about. If your taking someone else’s work, then you’re not cultivating virtues and you’re not developing as a person. Consistency with our moral experiences: -Considered Judgment= “Murder is bad”. -Moral Experiences= right/wrong, we can explain our reasons and give more than one, when not subjective. It’s not just about you. You should consider others around you. For example, the Holocaust was good and bad, there is no opinions about it. There were good things about it and there were bad things about it because you have proof of why it is good and you have proof of why it was bad. Usefulness in moral problem-solving: Whether or not your morals can help you solve problems. Feeding a hobo even though you are hungry. Is it wrong for you to eat first because you are hungry? Is it wrong for you to watch him starve will you don’t? And is it wrong for you not to share so that way both of you get to eat?
