Caratteri a confronto. Nussbaum e Williams tra virtù, giudizio pratico e riflessi politici
In this paper I aim to explore the points of contact and divergence between two authors who have extensively reflected on the extent of an ethical “feeling” that would call the agent to a more precise awareness of the role of the emotional motions underlying decisions and character formation. In what makes an agent, in short, a person. In this sense, I intend to compare the normative and procedural significance of character and emotions in moral evaluation by comparing the theses of Martha Nussbaum and Bernard Williams. A relationship between the two positions will be highlighted in order to support, on these results, a normative justification of the use of moral inclinations as means of justice promoted by political communities.
