In this intensive online seminar, Greg will lead participants in study of Aristotle’s analyses of good and bad moral dispositions, the virtues and the vices. We will work through a number of topics that are discussed in Aristotle’s classic work of moral theory, the Nicomachean Ethics, books 2-4:
- what virtues and vices are and what they apply to
- how virtues and vices fit into human nature
- the doctrine of the virtuous mean
- the distinction between being virtuous and acting in accordance with virtue
- how virtues and vices are developed
- the role of pain, pleasure, desires, and emotions
- the specific virtues and vices
We will take scheduled pauses for question and answer during the presentation, and have a longer question and answer period towards the end. Participants will receive downloadable handouts and worksheets on the topics, and will be able to access a recording of the seminar afterwards.
Enrollment in the seminar is restricted to 12 participants, and costs US$49.00. To register, or to get on our list for future seminars, click here.
