3rd Annual Conference: Varieties of Virtue Ethics

Varieties of Virtue Ethics

8th – 10th January 10`5, Oriel College, Oxford

The third annual conference of the Jubilee Centre for Character and Virtues, University of Birmingham.

The aim of this conference was to bring together experts from a range of disciplines to explore the varieties of virtue ethics, both within and across disciplinary boundaries. To what extent are the varieties of virtue ethics rooted in different conceptions of a single underlying concept, and to what extent have they taken on lives of their own? What, if any, is the underlying common core that legitimises calling an approach a ‘variety of virtue ethics’? Most importantly, what can theorists from philosophy, social science and theology learn from each other’s work?
