    To have a virtue is to possess a certain kind of trait of character that is appropriate in pursuing the moral good at which the virtue aims.

  • How Ethical Theory Can Improve Practice: Lessons from Abu Ghraib (2009)

    Nancy E. Snow Abuses at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq confront us with the question of how seemingly ordinary soldiers could have perpetrated harms against prisoners.

  • Character and Environment: The Status of Virtues in Organizations (2008)

  • Divine Motivation Theory (2004)

    "At the core of the book lies a new form of virtue theory based on the emotions.
