Ethics in the future should be values-based

Ethics in the future should be values-based
Triadic Philosophy substitutes Values for Aristotle's binary virtues

Aristotle set the stage for ethics discussion  But Aristotle bases his ethics on character and virtue rather than will 
Now Western thought has a "value system"  based not on will but on honor  Aristotle's overarching virtue
Values and will are one  Values create history and culture  Values transcend character  Values transcend virtue  Values are the desires of the heart
 Jesus understands all of this  Aristotle appears not to
Only the will is capable of desire
