A. Macintyre: Person, community and tradition against individualism

Producció científica: Article en revista indexadaArticleAvaluat per experts


Alasdair MacIntyre is one of the most important authors in contemporary Ethics and Political Philosophy. Regarding his political thought, he was a key figure in the Liberalism-Communitarianism debate, one of the most important and fruitful in the field of Moral and Political Philosophy in the second half of the 20th century. An important point of Communitarianism is its critique of the liberal view of the self and of Ethics and Politics, that is to say, a critique of an individualistic view of the human being (an idea maintained by MacIntyre throughout his intellectual evolution). MacIntyre's thought has been studied from many points of view, but there is no research on his global critique and alternative to Individualism. For that reason, the aim of this paper is to study and analyze such an alternative. It is worth analyzing it although over the last few years the Liberalism-Communitarianism debate has lost importance in Philosophy. This alternative is based on the concepts of 'person', 'community' and 'tradition'.
