Virtue Ethics and Conflict of Interest
Justin Oakley says that he will “argue that virtue ethics provides a deeper and more compelling analysis of the ethical problems raised by conflicts of interest in physician prescribing than do other ethical perspectives.” The author argues that he shows important virtues of virtue ethics, but that he has not shown that virtue ethics provides a deeper or more compelling analysis than do “other ethical perspectives.” Oakley gives good reasons to think that we need ethical perspectives that supplement and are not derivative from virtue theory. The author will argue that we should be concerned about both the character and motives of persons and about conformity to rules in conflict of interest situations.
