My values are primarily virtue based. I agree with Aristotle that individual acts and character count for something. The golden mean is a good philosophy to live by. Balance in one's life ususally promotes success and fulfillment. The book we're reading in class says a good way to think of Aristotle's framework is to pick a hero and model ones life after that person. However there are very few people worth modeling ones life after.
Kant's categorical imperative is much too rigid for me. There are exceptions to every rule and one has to make choices that don't always follow a formula. I don't think universal law is always simple, if it was we wouldn't be having this discussion.
