Virtue, Vice, and Value
Hurka, Thomas. Virtue, Vice, and Value. New York: Oxford University Press US, 2003.
What are virtue and vice, and how do they relate to other moral
properties such as goodness and rightness? Thomas Hurka defends a distinctive
perfectionist view according to which the virtues are higher-level intrinsic
goods, ones that involve morally appropriate attitudes to other, independent
goods and evils. He develops this highly original view in detail and argues for
its superiority over rival views, including those given by virtue ethics.
