Abstract [en]

Environmental virtue ethics has grown to be a vital part of environmental philosophy and with regard to agricultural and food ethics virtues are proposed to guide us on how to manage our agriculture and food production. In this paper I will critically examine one central question for environmental virtue ethics: Do we need new virtues in light of our environmental challenges? By investigating the virtue 'being rightly oriented toward nature' as proposed by Hursthouse I highlight: (1) that many of the new proposed virtues are different from the old virtues in the sense that they are not justified as virtues by the notion of eudaimonia; I argue (2) that the question of whether new virtues are needed demands a specification of what 'need' the new virtues are supposed to address.
