(p.1) Chapter 1 Introduction
Inner Virtue

Nicolas Bommarito

Oxford University Press

This chapter introduces the two main aims of the book. The first is to establish a class of inner virtues and vices—states relevant to moral character that are independent of overt, voluntary action. These states include pleasure, emotion, and attention. The second is to offer a substantive, unifying explanation of how these various inner states are virtuous or vicious; that is, to explain what these diverse states all have in common that connects them to our moral character. These states are morally virtuous or vicious, I’ll argue, by manifesting moral cares or concerns.
