Suffering and Virtue
Suffering and Virtue1 2 5 Scritto da: Michael S. Brady Letto da: Jonathan Cowley
After presenting a distinctive account of suffering and a novel interpretation of its core element-unpleasantness-Brady focuses on three claims that are central to his picture. The first is that forms of suffering, like pain and remorse, can themselves constitute virtuous responses. The second is that suffering is essential for four important classes of virtue: virtues of strength, such as fortitude and courage; virtues of vulnerability, such as adaptability and humility; moral virtues, such as compassion; and the practical and epistemic excellences that make up wisdom. His third and final claim is that suffering is vital for the social virtues of justice, love, and trust, and hence for the flourishing of social groups.
