dc.description.abstractThis thesis examines the intellectual virtue of phronesis, as understood through Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics and Joseph Dunne’s addition to Aristotle in Back to the Rough Ground. The thesis highlights the importance of the virtue by contrasting it to the other intellectual virtue of techne¸ and using three novels to provide practical examples of the virtue. The three novels, The Good Apprentice, The Brothers Karamazov, and That Hideous Strength, provide specific insight into the nature of the interaction between techne and phronesis, which highlight the impact of overemphasizing techne at the expense of phronesis.en_US
