    What Does It Mean, To Become Like God?: Theaetetus 176a–177b.Shane Drefcinski - 2014 - International Philosophical Quarterly 54 (4):411-427.
    In the Theaetetus Socrates states that we should become like God. Recent commentators disagree over the meaning of his directive. David Sedley argues that it urges us to assimilate to God in our present lifespan by a life of philosophical contemplation. Julia Annas thinks that it is just another way of stating that virtue is sufficient for happiness. Sandra Peterson denies that Socrates’s directive should be taken seriously. I argue that his directive is serious and includes both moral virtue and (...)

    “For the Most Part” Generalizations and Practical Wisdom.Shane Drefcinski - 2020 - International Philosophical Quarterly 60 (2):139-151.
    My objective in this paper is to contribute to our understanding of Aristotle’s science of ethics by defending two claims. There is a way in which generalizations hold only for the most part that is unlike any of the types of generalizations in the natural sciences that hold only for the most part. These ethical generalizations depict ideals that, although grounded in and perfective of our human nature, are only rarely realized. Aristotle’s account of practical wisdom provides all the resources (...)

    What Kind of Cause Is Music’s Influence on Moral Character?Shane Drefcinski - 2011 - American Catholic Philosophical Quarterly 85 (2):287-296.
    In Politics VIII, Aristotle contends that music has some influence over character and the soul. Nevertheless, it is not entirely clear what sort of influence music has. Does appropriate music cause someone to become virtuous, as Socrates seems to suggest? And if that is Aristotle’s claim, then is it noteasily refuted by examples of vicious lovers of excellent music, such as the Nazi soldiers who forced imprisoned Jewish musicians to perform Mozart concertos?But if appropriate music is not the principal cause (...)
