A new moral theory?
Posted on September 27, 2012
Could it be? The Oklahoma Daily reports that Oklahoma University Professor Linda Zagzebski has received two grants to help her write a book on her new ethical theory, which she calls “Examplarist Virtue Theory.” What’s that, you ask?
Zagzebski will use the grants to take a paid leave of absence to write the book about her Examplarist Virtue Theory, a moral theory that discusses the relationship between people and their exemplars, people who are picked out by the emotion of admiration, she said.
