|Title:||Can There be Virtue in Violence?||Authors:||Stout, Rowland||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/5241||Date:||Oct-2013||Abstract:||Fighting is a norm-governed practice within which fighting back can be justified in certain circumstances. This is a possible non-instrumental justification of violence, but only if one is justified in engaging in the practice of fighting in the first place. The disposition to engage in fights in the right circumstances – for example when this is the only way to protect your status as a person to be reckoned with – can be justified as an aspect of Aristotelian virtue.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Cairn||Copyright (published version):||2013, Assoc.
