Morals from Motives develops a virtue ethics inspired more by moral sentimentalism than by recently-influential Aristotelianism. It argues that a reconfigured and expanded 'morality of caring' can offer a general account of right and wrong action and also (in its own terms) of social justice, and the book goes on to show how a motive-based 'pure' virtue theory can also help us to understand the nature of human well-being and practical reason.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Goes some way to correcting the ostrich-like tendencies of virtue ethics. * Gerald Lang, Times Literary Supplement *
Michael Slote's book Morals from Motives fosters an admirable development in modern virtue ethics: the sense that virtue ethics is a genus (like consequentialism) having several species ... Morals from Motives is a fine example of a modern virtue ethics derived from the moral 'sentimentalism' of Hutcheson and Hume, as well as James Martineau ... Slote succeeds rather well in maintaining a clear focus throughout the book. * Mind *
