Inner Virtue

Nicolas Bommarito

Oxford University Press

After establishing an excessive focus on overt action in much of moral theory, I present two key examples: Weather Watchers and locked-in syndrome. These are cases of beings unable to perform overt actions but who are morally assessable in a variety of ways. I then present my account of how such states are virtuous or vicious: by manifesting morally relevant care or concerns. Finally, I explain in more detail the notions of care and manifestation and respond to some worries about the account.

Keywords:   Weather Watchers, locked-in syndrome, virtue, vice, care, concern, manifestation, dispositions, reliability
