Virtue Ethics
This paper would go towards the bulk of the one chapter in the overall PhD thesis. The chapter looks to discuss virtue ethics as a normative theory, it’s characteristics, and address objections to i) right action (assessment and evaluation of moral actions) and ii) action guidance (what one ought to do in a situation).

Bibliography includes: Liezl van Zyl, Julian Annas, Daniel Russell, The Cambridge Companion to Virtue Ethics, Chapter 8- Virtue Ethics and Right Action; R.Das, Virtue Ethics and Right Action, 2003; Crisp & Slote, Virtue Ethics, 1997; R. Hursthouse, On Virtue Ethics, 1999.
