Abstract

So far we have pieced together Aristotle’s response to the problem posed by moral luck. The picture that has emerged is one of the phenomenon of moral luck being accepted and accommodated within moral theory. Moral luck is an unavoidable part of the world human beings live in and of their make-up. Any moral theory, on Aristotle’s view, has to recognize this, accept it and try to accommodate it as best it can. We shall now look at a different answer to the question of moral luck: that given by the Stoics.
