This seems to be a hard, if not impossible, task indeed. However, I hope to make some significant steps towards a solution in the next chapters, in which I will continue to develop the phenomenological–hermeneutical argument I started in this chapter by exploring a relational and transcendental approach to moral status. Finally, as I said previously, it seems that environmental virtue ethics faces a problem of motivation. Even if we could identify, justify and apply the environmental virtues (and if we knew to whom or to what they apply, if we knew to whose flourishing a virtuous person should be responsive), then there would still be a gap between knowledge and action: we recognize the need for a different relation to nature, for different practice, but we fail to act upon that knowledge.
However, both Warren’s approach and Søraker’s hesitate to draw more radical conclusions from the claim that the relations matter morally. They acknowledge that an entity’s relations are relevant to the moral status of that entity, but they remain within the paradigm of the properties-view. By holding that an entity has relational and non-relational properties, they do not go all the way with relationalism. 3. Towards a phenomenological argument There is an entirely different way to forge a combinatory view.

Run, walk, swim, sweat. ’ (Cafaro 2004, p. 155) Appearance and Virtue 29 Ideals and principles can have a role in ethics, but we must try them in life; this is what Cafaro calls an ‘experimental virtue ethics’ (p.
