Virtue

VirtueVirtue by Heather D Battaly
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Last spring I picked this book as a text for my sophomore ethics class this semester. I had not read it all the way through until we got to it in class. Battaly gives a nice summary of the current state of virtue theory (both in ethics and epistemology) and presents the theory with contemporary examples that engaged my students. I found it easy to supplement with more content about the various thinkers and ideas she discusses.

She also makes her own arguments in the book, which gave our class opportunities to discuss and critique. For example, Battaly believes that virtue is neither sufficient nor necessary for living well.
