Virtue Ethics is the ethics of character and character formation and for this reason is sometimes described as agent-centred to contrast it with rule-based ethical theories. The agent here is the person who is choosing to pursue some end and doing so for good reasons. So a virtue is usually defined as either a disposition of character or an inclination of character, the first definition highlighting the habitual nature of the virtues, and the second, the link between virtue and will.
