Abstract

<p>abstract:</p><p><i>Two of the most basic commitments of virtue ethics, both ancient and contemporary, are that virtue is knowledge and that this knowledge is a kind of moral sensitivity that is best understood on the model of perception. This view is vulnerable to two potentially very serious objections, both of which concern virtue ethics&apos; commitment to metaethical internalism, which holds that judgments of the form "x is right" entail some kind of motivation to do x. I argue in this paper that we can find the resources to respond adequately to these objections in Maurice Merleau-Ponty&apos;s</i> Phenomenology of Perception.</p>
