The next book will be Alasdair MacIntyre’s After Virtue – A Study in Moral Theory. Few books has made a more important impact on modern moral academic debate than this book. In it MacIntyre argues that the modern world has lost touch with the virtues and therefore has reduced morality to personal preference. This has led to the regrettable consequence that there are no longer any common criteria to value morally important issues. Therefore he argues for an Aristotelian virtue-ethics which relate virtues to praxis, narrative and tradition.
