A.P.Western Lit. Summer Reading Assignment Virtue. One word at that. A noun easily defined by the worlds most renowned dictionary, Marian Webster in 4 words, moral excellence; goodness: righteousness. While this is an easy way to define virtue, Christopher Phillips pushes this definition to its limits in Six Questions of Socrates and perhaps takes it one step further. His discussion of virtue begins its journey in a Navajo nation community center in a remote outpost. It is there where he posses the question to eighteen gathered members of the tribe, “What is virtue”. The discussion opens with a participant defining virtue as “Something that brings everything into harmony”, and gives their word for it as “Hozho”. I felt as though that was a great launching point into defining what Virtue is- as harmony would be defined as goodness or righteousness. It is however the response that follows where things get side tracked. The participant’s girlfriend responds by calling it a “Type” of beauty and order and harmony that makes you and everyone around you happy”.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
