Abstract

I When someone speaks of virtue or of a virtuous person, we are most likely to think of people who are kind or fair to other people. That is because it is natural to connect being a virtuous person with being moral, and in our ordinary thinking about morality, being moral is primarily a matter of doing the right thing by others. But the focus on our relations with other people leaves out of the account an extremely important dimension of our ethical thought. We can admire and deplore what people do to or for themselves, and such self-regarding considerations need to be taken just as seriously as the other-regarding factors in morality narrowly conceived.
