  1. Compare and contrast the ethics of virtue and the ethics of conduct: Critically discuss at least two different cultures or philosophical traditions that value having a good character over doing the right thing. Why do these cultures or traditions emphasize the importance of being a good person over doing good things? Which tradition is closer to your own ethical standard? Must one choose between these two approaches, or can they be blended into a kind of hybrid “character + conduct” ethics? Can you find any examples of such a hybrid view? Explain and defend your point of view on this issue using whatever evidence you believe to be relevant.
