That goes not only for the opponent concerns you exhibited from MacIntyre's text, but for the contrasting outlook of taking the making of one's life a good one (in the circumstances) to be the essence of morality with taking one's treatment of persons as persons to be the essence of morality. The debate and progress in the debate can go on, even if particular thinkers and particular eras have finished their own engagements over the questions without getting beyond certain impasses between the outlooks.
