Book excerpt: For more than 20 years, this title has provided scholars and students a highly accessible and teachable alternative to the dominant principle-based theories in the field. Raymond J. Devettere's approach is not based on an ethics of abstract obligations and duties but, following Aristotle, on how to live a fulfilled and happy life - in short, an ethics of personal well-being grounded in prudence, the virtue of ethical decision making.
