  • Major difficulty - identifying the virtues. Are virtues culturally relative?
  • How can Virtue ethics be applied to moral dilemmas? - Robert Louden > virtue ethics does not help people facing a crisis beacuse it does not give any clear rules for action - it is diffcult to work out what is the virtuous response to stem cell research or abortion. - Virtue ethics does not give any concrete answers 
  • Virtue ethics seems to praise some virtues that we might see as immoral
