Response paper Habits and Virtues https://www.rifp.it/ojs/index.php/rifp/article/download/rifp.2014.0026/360
Write a response paper on an assigned article: “Habits and Virtues: Does It Matter if a Leader Kicks a Dog?”. Reflect your understanding. Moral character is formed by one’s actions. The habits, actions, and emotional responses of the person of good character all are united and directed toward the moral and the good. Because human beings are body/soul unities, actions of the body are actions of the self, that is, human beings are self-possessing, self-governing, and self-determining. In order to be of good character, one must know the good, act in morally good ways, and be disposed and inclined toward the good through the development of virtues.
