This page intentionally left blank Preface There are many people we wish to thank for their support in the course of writing this book. We are grateful to the ARC for supporting this project from the outset. For his encouragement and enthusiasm about the project from the beginning, and for his helpful comments on the work in progress especially in the early stages we would like to thank Michael Smith.
For his detailed and incisive comments on every chapter, several times over, we are deeply indebted to John Campbell. John read our drafts very carefully, and his feedback was extremely valuable.
He helped us refine our arguments at many points, and raised many useful questions about virtue ethics that would not otherwise have occurred to us.
Warm thanks are also owed to Jennifer Radden for her valuable and stimulating comments on the entire typescript. Two anonymous readers for Cambridge University Press also provided very extensive comments on the penultimate draft, and their detailed suggestions resulted in many improvements to the typescript.
We are also grateful for the feedback we received from Lori Gruen, R. Dean would also like to thank the Department of Philosophy at the University of Auckland, for their support in the form of a Post-Doctoral Fellowship, and in particular team captain Tim Dare.
For his enthusiasm about the project and his general encouragement, we also thank Robert Young. Earlier versions of the chapters in this book have been read to various audiences over the years, as indicated in the notes to each chapter. On a more practical level, we wish to express our appreciation to Hilary Gaskin, Philosophy Editor at Cambridge University Press, for her patience, professionalism, and promptness.
We also thank copy-editor Pauline Marsh for her meticulousness and her suggestions for stylistic improvements. Writing arc rejoinders exercises University generously provided Justin with two periods of study leave, which enabled significant progress to be made on this project.
Justin also wishes to thank David and Beverley Macintosh, for their kindness in making available the library of their wonderful house as a peaceful area in which to write, and the Faculty of Arts staff at Monash Caulfield Campus, who provided a quiet temporary office away from the distractions of the Clayton campus.
Dean is especially grateful to Seumas Miller for providing him with the research time to finish work on this book and for his tremendous support and encouragement more generally. We are personally indebted to a number of people for their support over the years this book was written.
Justin wishes to express his heartfelt appreciation to his partner, Kathryn Bailey, for her unfailing loyalty Preface xi and support, and to his son Jordan, for the lightness and joy he has brought during these years.
Most of all Dean would like to thank his mother, Yvonne, whose continuing devotion and support have been enormous and contributed so much to his life. Acknowledgements Sections of the following chapters draw on our previously published material, as indicated.

Traits that are vices in ordinary life are praised as virtues in the context of professional roles. Should this disturb us, or is it naive to presume that things should be otherwise? It is natural to turn for guidance on such matters to recent work in virtue ethics.
Unfortunately, however, much of this writing suffers from a lack of detail about how the approach is to be applied to practical issues. This book is an attempt to address that problem. In what follows we develop a clear and rigorous account of virtue ethics, which explains how it differs from contemporary versions of rival ethical theories.
We show why virtue ethics is to be preferred to those views, and explain how it offers a natural and promising approach to the ethics of professional roles.
In doing so, we bring out how a properly developed virtue ethics can offer a promising way to resolve a central issue in professional ethics, in its ability to account for how professional roles can legitimately have their own action-guiding force, without compromising the broader values to which those roles are answerable.
Our general aim is to show how a theoretically advanced virtue ethics offers a plausible and distinctive alternative to utilitarian and Kantian approaches to understanding and evaluating professional roles — in particular, the role morality of medical and legal practice.
We argue for the merits of virtue ethics over these other approaches on both theoretical and practical grounds.
Following this, we go on to provide an outline of a virtue-based approach to professional roles, which we then apply to medical and legal practice. Many have welcomed this sort of external critical evaluation of previously accepted professional norms, which they rightly feel was well overdue.
Indeed, some have gone on to suggest that professional norms are themselves redundant and that reliance upon them is pernicious. They feel that something important is lost in the move to the general here.
Lawrence Blum has likewise made claims about the inadequacies of universalist ethical theories in capturing what it is to be a good teacher. These critics seem to us correct in saying that an approach which judges the legitimacy of all professional behaviour directly in terms of broad-based moral standards will not do justice to the responsibilities and sensitivities proper to various professional roles, and that a satisfactory ethic for a given profession must be able to recognise the particular 1 Robert M.
In the later chapters of the book, we discuss a range of problems that consequentialist and Kantian ethical theories might have in accommodating the distinctive requirements and sensitivities appropriate to various professional roles.The disposition to be conservative is, then, warm and positive in respect of enjoyment, and correspondingly cool and critical in respect of change and innovation: these two inclinations support and elucidate one another.
