The ethical challenges facing us at present have shown the limits of the currently dominating types of ethics which are focues on rules and principles. Accordingly, approaches to an ethics based on the concepts of virtue and the good life have regained significance for the philosophical debate. As a consequence, there has also been a resurgence of the debate of the role of the concept of human nature in ethics. These are the issues which stimulate this collection of papers by American, British and German scholars - a collection that combines historical investigation in ancient and medieval ethics of virtues and happiness with contributions to the contemporary ethical debate. The list of contributors includes: S. Blackburn, D. Bradley, M. Forschner, Ch. Gill, L. Honnefelder, R. Hursthouse, K. Jacobi, Ch. Kahn, A. Muller, M. Seel, L. Siep, E. Stump and G. Wieland.Über den Autor:
