Agent-centered Virtue EthicsAgent-centered moral theories on Virtue Ethics question whether a particular action orperson is virtuous on the basis of motivation and disposition or on the basis of a certain“paragon” of virtue. Thus, the Agent-centered Virtue ethics can be divided into two theories: TheMotivation Agent-Centered Theory and the Paragon Agent-Centered Theory. Motivation Agent-Centered Virtue TheoryFor this theory on virtue ethics, it can be easily summarized as: The goodness of action Ais derived from the agent’s motives when they perform A. If the motives are good, therefore theact is good. If the motives are bad, then the act is bad.In the example earlier, let us look back at the man who helped his friend in reviewing forhis exam. He shows his willingness to help by offering it to his friend upon hearing that he hastroubles with the lesson. The man’s motivation for is act is to help someone in need, thus the actcan be considered as virtuous based on the motivation agent-centered virtue theory.
