On Virtue Ethics

Aristotle is arguably superior to Kant in his account of human rationality, an account that allows the emotions to participate in reason, rather than being mere animal, non‐rational impulses, and thereby play their proper role in the specification of full virtue. The virtues are concerned with actions and feelings, and the moral education needed to develop them involves the education of the emotions. The full significance of this fact can be fruitfully illustrated through an example of moral miseducation, viz. the inculcation of racism.
