Julia Annas offers a new account of virtue and happiness as central ethical ideas. She argues that exercising a virtue involves practical reasoning of the kind we find in someone exercising an everyday practical skill, such as farming, building, or playing the piano. This helps us to see virtue as part of an agent's happiness or flourishing.

Anne Baril, Mind Intelligent Virtue is engaging, stimulating, and suggestive. Anyone interested in eudaimonist virtue approaches to ethics will be rewarded by giving it a careful readespecially critics, whose arguments against such approaches are often off-target. A careful, attentive, and sympathetic read of Intelligent Virtue will not only be rewarding for its own sake, but will help critics formulate more appropriate criticisms of eudaimonist virtue approaches.


Rosalind Hursthouse, Times Literary Supplement written with such lucid simplicity that any reader of the TLS who has been sufficiently interested to read this far should find it enjoyable, instructive and inspiring


Erica Lucast Stonestreet, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews an attractive account both of what virtue is and how it is connected to happiness and the good. The Aristotelian picture Annas provides is appealing in its own right, and because of its clarity and accessibility is also especially useful as an introduction to virtue and eudaimonism for those who teach about ethics


Brian K. Cameron, Philosophy in Review With direct and simple prose, and a refreshingly unpretentious tone ... the connections Annas forges between virtue and happiness (eudaimonia) are fascinating ... Intelligent Virtue is all the more worth reading precisely because it does invite us to engage in a critical dialogue with the themes and ideas it proffers. Let us then recline in comfort, open a bottle of fine Italian and be part of the conversation. Bene Vita!


Anne Baril, Mind essential reading for anyone interested in defending (or criticizing) eudaimonist, virtue-centered ethical theories ... is sure to set the agenda for the development of such theories in the years to come. ... Intelligent Virtue is engaging, stimulating, and suggestive. Anyone interested in eudaimonist virtue apporaches to ethics will be rewarded by giving it a careful read - especially critics, whose arguments against such approaches are often off-target. A
careful, attentive, and sympathetic read of Intelligent Virtue will not only be rewarding for its own sake, but will help critics formulate more appropriate criticisms of eudaimonist virtue approaches.
