  1. David Sobel says:

    Two somewhat older readings that I very much profited from are Hurka’s Perfectionism, esp the early chapters and Hursthouse’s On Virtue Ethics, especially the latter chapters. At least Hurka’s book could I certainly think be assigned to advanced undergrads.

    Geach’s “Good and Evil” and while not a paper, Foot’s Natural Goodness.
