Peter Baron examines three versions of virtue ethics - the classical virtue ethics of Aristotle, which he argues is rooted in a metaphysical biology, the virtue ethics of Alasdair Macintyre's After Virtue, grounded in sociology of how groups work, and the naturalistic rationalism of Philippa Foot as exemplified in her last book Natural Goodness. He finds both similarities and differences in these three key theories, and also gives grounds for evaluating each according to the common objections made to each theory by contemporary philosophers.
