In this classic work, Alasdair MacIntyre examines the historical and conceptual roots of the idea of virtue, diagnoses the reasons for its absence in personal and public life, and offers a tentative proposal for its recovery While the individual chapters are wide ranging, once pieced together, they comprise a penetrating and focused argument about the price of modernity. In the third edition s prologue, MacIntyre revisits the central theses of the book and concludes that, although he has learned a great deal and has supplemented and refined his theses and arguments in other works, he has as yet found no reason for abandoning the major contentions of this book While he recognizes that his conception of human beings as virtuous or vicious needed not only a metaphysical but also a biological grounding, ultimately he remains committed to the thesis that it is only from the standpoint of a very different tradition, one whose beliefs and presuppositions were articulated in their classical form by Aristotle, that we can understand both the genesis and the predicament of moral modernity After Virtue Wikipedia After is a book on moral philosophy by Alasdair MacIntyreMacIntyre provides bleak view of the state modern discourse, regarding it as failing Phronesis Phronesis Ancient Greek , translit phrn sis an word for type wisdom or intelligenceIt specifically relevant to practical action, implying both good judgement and excellence character habits, virtue Religion Peacebuilding Religion Peace Conflict Journal Religion, after all, powerful constituent cultural norms values, because addresses most profound existential issues human life eg freedom inevitability, fear faith, security insecurity, right wrong, sacred profane religion deeply implicated in individual social conceptions peace Notices John McLellan Co Funeral Directors, Fort William Highly regarded independent funeral company based William McLellans proud have served Lochaber community years After Virtue, Third Edition
