Question:'Explain how Macintyre's account of a life lived in accordance with the virtues could be applied to the issue of consumerism'
Obviously i will define consumerism and the application of Macintyre's virtues to consumerism, but on the whole he had very little to say on consumerism so i have to find things to apply.
These are the points i have so far.
- virtues of temperance ie. roght balance between temperance and insensibility
-Macintyres account of the 'practices'
-Humans are born to develop human qualities which are threatened by consumer lifestyles.
-consumerism encourages peopleto define themseleves in terms of products/goods.
Any ideas or any additions, or in-fact if any of these don't seem quite correct could you just help me out a bit. I've done most of the skeleton framework, it's just a matter of bolstering it up a bit and making it more eassy esq.
