Physics, Ethics, and the Life of Practice

The spring Schmitt Lecture took place on April 8, 2008, and was delivered by the Center’s senior research fellow, Alasdair MacIntyre. Professor MacIntyre’s lecture, entitled “Physics, Ethics, and the Life of Practice,” addressed the question of what contexts are best suited to the development of moral character, and argued that far more can be learned about acquiring virtue from a practice such as physics than from academic courses in ethics.
