Abstract: The most significant contribution of virtue ethics is the role of discriminative intelligence (practical wisdom) in decision making. Decision making in virtue ethics is actually influenced by the acumen and discriminative intelligence of the agent concerned rather than rules and codes of morality. Habitual inculcation of virtue facilitated by education and incentives is only the starting point. The completeness of the character of the agent is possible only when the discriminative knowledge takes shape in the agent. This article distinguishes moral virtue from natural dispositions, and elaborates the process of development of moral virtue, how moral virtue relates to practical wisdom, how characters of the agent gets formed, and finally how character of the agent impacts the decision process specifically in the context of business.
