After Virtue

by MacIntyre, Alasdair (1981)

Key Passage

a practice is: any coherent form of socially established cooperative activity through which goods internal to that form of activity are realised in the course of trying to achieve those standards of excellence which are appropriate to, and partially definitive of, that form of activity. It "has “the result that human powers to achieve excellence, and human conceptions of the ends and goods involved, are systematically extended". (p.187)
