    • Plato's views on virtue ethics
    • Virtue ethics is classed as agent centered morality. This is because instead of focusing on what a virtuous person is, virtue ethics asks 'What makes a virtuous person?'
    • Plato claims that happiness must be attained through virtue. An action can be defined as good when it helps achieve happiness. For Plato he called these values cardinal virtues.  He explained that when someones cardinal virtues are in balance their actions will be good.
