What are 2 virtues that you believe are important to living a flourishing or successful life in either Aristotle’s or MacIntyre’s sense? Explain what goods in human life these virtues enable their possessor to fulfill. Provide examples of characteristic behavior that manifests these virtues, and contrast that with behavior that displays a lack of virtue.
