Example text

Moral goodness was seen as a quality of the soul, whereas the body was the source of distraction and temptation. This even led some theorists to suggest that women were not capable of being moral since their motivations were dominated by their bodies, feelings and emotions. This is not the place to debate these very large philosophical issues, but it is worth noting that virtue ethics thinks of the human agent in more holistic terms. In so far as well-ingrained virtues are habits acquired through instruction and practice, they are inscribed into the body.

The importance of this distinction between external and internal reasons is that it points, once again, to the agent’s character as central to any description of moral agency from the virtue ethics perspective. This distinction also solves a problem that many moral theorists in the tradition of duty ethics have found puzzling. This problem is that of linking moral thinking to moral action. It is one thing to conclude from principles that a particular action should be done and quite another to be motivated to do it.

It is not that I have been given some objective or absolute definition of courage and have then applied it successfully to particular cases. Rather, when I was a child I experienced the actions of others or stories about them and other people called them examples of courage and, when asked, explained to me why. Sometimes, older people called certain actions foolhardy, sometimes they described them as courageous, and sometimes as heroic. Sometimes I have done things myself that have earned the description “courageous”.
