Notes: In May of 2014 a conference in David's [Solomon] honor was held at Notre Dame that brought together most of his doctoral students and many of his collaborators in the revival of virtue ethics. The majority of the essays in this volume were first presented in earlier versions at this conference. Four contributions were commissioned afterwards (those of Kevin Flannery, Michael Beaty, Thomas Hibbs, and Candace Vogler), and David's own concluding essay was added once the rest of the manuscript was complete.
