Moral Virtues and Moral Vices
What are the personal qualities needed to live a good life? Philosophers since Aristotle have discussed this question. The term “moral virtues” refers to the character traits that are helpful or even necessary for a well-lived life; moral vices are those character traits that are obstacles to living well. We will explore moral virtues such as compassion and forgiveness. We will read what some philosophers have written, but we will especially discuss the virtues and vices that people in the group propose and wish to explore. Elias Baumgarten, Ph.D., has taught philosophy at UM-Dearborn for 46 years and has served on ethics committees at UM Hospital for 30 years.
