Virtue theory in ethics, derived from Plato, Aristotle, and Aquinas continues to find application in business and medical ethics, as well as in daily life. What virtues are the most important for contemporary life? Define each virtue, give examples of their importance, and show how these virtues were demonstrated in particular incidents or by particular people. How can we develop these virtues? Do some virtues depend on others? What are the relationships among these virtues? Summarize by explaining why these virtues in particular, as opposed to other virtues, or rule-based systems, are important to cultivate.
