Virtue TheoryVirtue Theory
Aristotle..s (384-322BC..) principle work on ethics was his virtue theory; virtue being quality of good in human behaviour, which is interpreted as descriptive of behaviour rather than innate qualities and are achieved through training and discipline. His aim was to focus upon these qualities and characteristics of a person, rather than consequences like utilitarianism, or actions we have a duty to perform, resembling deontology; being virtuous is central to morality. He claimed that whenever we do something, we do it to gain an end, and that end of all ends is for the greatest good. But to achieve that end we must practise, then we will improve our skills (virtue), and so become happy and live the good life; the good life being a life of happiness. For Aristotle happiness is our ultimate goal in life, our highest good. Virtuous activity fulfils our proper function, it is satisfying and brings us pleasure, but not as an ultimate end.
