Virtue Ethics

I wasn’t sure whether this painting was going to be about Universalism or about Virtue Ethics. As it developed it became about Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics. The quality of a person’s character is very much in our thinking at the moment. Trustworthiness, honour, temperance and modesty seem to be more scarce than money, ego and narcissism in our leaders. When did the belief that immediate gratification was an inherent good become common ?
