This chapter examines the various influences on Green's ethical theory. Green roots his ethical theory firmly in ancient and modern philosophical traditions. His method is dialectical and syncretic, examining different ethical traditions and forging his own view out of what he regards as the insights and resources in these traditions. Among strongest formative influences on Green's ethical theory are the Greeks (especially Aristotle), Kant, and Hegel.

Keywords: T. H. Green; ethical theory; Aristotle; Kant; Hegel
