Starting from Anscombe’s Modern Moral Philosophy (with its critic to modern ethical emphasis on duties and its promotion of a moral psychology and of the return of virtues) and going beyond, the paper wants to focus the importance but also the insufficiency of social collaboration’s rules in order to solve many social and political problems. While a certain procedural liberalism (not the only existing liberalism) has attempted to find the constitutional and juridical mechanisms by which a society can thrive without the citizen’s virtues, the lecture will try to argue that it is indispensable to rely on a certain social presence of virtues, and therefore in some way (avoiding paternalism) to promote them, at least culturally.
