Challenges to Ethical Theorizing: Feminist Ethics and Virtue Ethics

Instead of discussing morality in terms of acts or judgments based on rules or principles, we should focus on maintaining personal relationships or developing a good character


Gender and Morality

Wollstonecraft

Carol Gilligan

  • Women can be as rational about morality as men if they receive a comparable education

  • Morality is not about abstract principles, individual rights, equality, or impartial (typically male) theories of justice,but about caring for persons in specific situations and maintaining relationships


Virtue Ethics

Aristotle

  • Morality requires developing habits that promote human excellence (and happiness)

  • To be virtuous means being rational, sensitive to the social and personal dimensions of life

  • Rational actions are not based on abstract principles but on moderation (golden mean)

  • Virtue is linked to intentions, which are in turn intelligible only within a unified personal and communal narrative
