Character and Moral Psychology by Christian B. Miller

By Christian B. Miller

Philosophers and psychologists were challenging at paintings attempting to release the mysteries of our characters. regrettably, their solutions were all around the map.
According to at least one place, each individual has the entire ethical virtues, akin to modesty and compassion, even supposing to various levels. but in keeping with one other place, nobody has any personality qualities in any respect for the reason that they're easily illusions and don't exist. consequently no longer one individual is sincere or compassionate or brave. And among those extremes, there are many intermediate views.
Christian B. Miller argues that now not this sort of top positions adequately displays what such a lot people are like this present day. He explores the consequences of the combined Trait framework-a conception of ethical personality constructed in his prior ebook, ethical personality: An Empirical idea. combined qualities have either morally beneficial properties (hence they don't seem to be vices) in addition to morally disadvantages (hence they aren't virtues). Miller engages with the opposite top positions at the empirical nature
of personality: situationism, the CAPS version, the large 5 version, and the neighborhood trait version. He is going directly to observe the combined Trait framework to a number of very important themes in ethics, specially the improvement of an blunders conception approximately judgments of personality and the problem confronted by means of advantage ethics from the widespread
lack of virtue.
