(p.111) 7 The Virtues and Human Nature
How Should One Live?

The concept of human nature has entered into virtue theory at two levels. The first is psychological: what are human beings like? This paper argues that it is a mistake to define virtue in terms of particular types of intentional psychological states. The second level concerns human flourishing. Here, the paper argues that one can develop a theory of virtue independently of the notion of flourishing.
