Wilson admits in the preface of his book that "virtue has acquired a bad name." However, people make some kind of reference to morality whenever they discuss whether or not someone is nice, dependable, or decent; whether they have a good character; and what some of the aspects of friendship, loyalty, and moderation are that are informed by morality. Although people may disguise this language of morality as a language of personality, it is, in Wilson's words, "the language of virtue and vice," which he uncovers in his book.
