I was a big Aristotelian in terms of my ethics, from my days of reading Alastair MacIntyre and Bernard Williams back in grad school.

I felt like it all made so much sense, but people were bad at it generally.

Then I read Simone de Beauvoir’s Ethics of Ambiguity and it all changed. Life became an art form in my mind.

Have you read her? I’m working on a piece about her for my group, the Existentialist Book Club at my publication, Serious Philosophy.

Cheers!
