Title Review of Nancy Sherman, "Making a Necessity of Virtue
Date 2000
Description Making a Necessity of Virtue is about the ethics of Aristotle and Kant. "Specifically," according to the first chapter, it "is about the role of emotions and practical reason in each theorist's account of virtue," though with "greater attention to the place of emotions in moral character". This description is a bit misleading. Much of the book has nothing to do with emotions, and the interrelations of emotion and practical reason are often left for the reader to work out.
