She goes on to argue that the existence of these virtues suggests that Aristotle's eudaimonism must be Burdened Virtues book "…the concept of burdened virtues implies that eudaimonism must be rethought in certain ways, because contrary to the usual pattern of connection between a virtue and its bearer's flourishing, here is a set of virtues that could only actualize their potential to be partly constitutive of a flourishing life if the background conditions were different. Tessman makes a further valuable point about the virtues. In what ways is oppositional anger unhealthy and what exactly does it corrode? Metrics details Abstract Gossip is often serious business, not idle chitchat. Much of the existing literature on gossip examines gossip between social equals, either exclusively among women Coates ; Jones or among generic agents Westacott ; Bertolotti and Magnani
