1 Virtue Jurisprudence: Towards an Aretaic Theory of Law 15 the altar of public opinion. A civically courageous judge understands that the good opinion of others is worth having if it flows from having done justice and that social approval for injustice is an impermissible motive for judicial action. Like fear, anger is an emotion both familiar and powerful. Judges like the rest of us may be hot tempered or cool and collected. And like the rest of us, judges are likely to find themselves in situations where a hot temper could produce intemperate actions.
I shall answer this question with respect to two contexts, illustrating both the way in which a virtuecentered theory of judging can capture the insights of its rivals and the way in which it might differ from them. ” These are cases in which the outcome required by the legal rules is in full accord with our sense of fairness. ” Cases of justice as fairness involve the situation in which the outcome dictated by the rules of law alone is not consistent with our understanding of what is fair in a wider sense.
