The Moral Decision: from Phronesis to Ethical Competence
The Aristotelian idea of φρόνησις (phronesis) is an invaluable resource to help amending the limits of deontological and consequentialist theories. It permits to free the moral decision from rules and 'standard' principles and to give contextual motivations.The ethical competence, as a process of construction of moral judgment aimed to give reason for our choices, is a contemporary development of this intuition.
