Ethics in Stranger Than Fiction

In this paper I try to show how ideas proposed by Alasdair Mac­Intyre in his book, After Virtue, can be found in Marc Forster’s 2006 film, Stranger Than Fiction. The movie provides excellent examples of various ideas in After Virtue. And, After Virtue provides a number of topics for discussion relating to the virtues and virtue theory in general. Since students enjoy the movie, it is an excellent way to introduce students to virtue ethics.
