Summary: "Lorraine Besser-Jones constructs compelling and original accounts of well-being, character, and virtue from the ground up, starting from established empirical findings and arguing meticulously for detailed normative theses. All previous attempts by virtue ethicists to accommodate empirical insights have been patch-jobs. This book belongs on the shelf of any self-respecting moral psychologist e" and in many classrooms." e"Mark Alfano, Princeton University Center for Human Values. Codice inventario libreria
In this book, Lorraine Besser-Jones develops a eudaimonistic virtue ethics based on a psychological account of human nature. While her project maintains the fundamental features of the eudaimonistic virtue ethical framework―virtue, character, and well-being―she constructs these concepts from an empirical basis, drawing support from the psychological fields of self-determination and self-regulation theory. Besser-Jones’s resulting account of "eudaimonic ethics" presents a compelling normative theory and offers insight into what is involved in being a virtuous person and "acting well." This original contribution to contemporary ethics and moral psychology puts forward a provocative hypothesis of what an empirically-based moral theory would look like.
