Philosopher's Holiday Lecture Series: Jay Elliot

Jay Elliott, Bard College “Aristotle on the Voluntariness of Vice” Can people who have been raised with false moral views be held responsible for their bad character? Philosophers have often assumed that they cannot, on the grounds that their character was never really "up to them." In this talk, I argue that Aristotle provides a compelling case for rejecting this assumption and holding that the moral views we get from our upbringing are in fact up to us in the only sense that matters.
