    We said, then, that it is not from Natural Science disposition; for if it were it might belong to some one who was asleep throughout his life, living the life of a plant, or, again, to some one who was suffering the greatest misfortunes. Emma Cohen de Lara e. That this activity is contemplative we have already said. The study of the Good is part of political science, because politics concerns itself with securing the highest ends for human life.

    Praise and blame attach to voluntary actions, i. The questions are connected; for if the former alternative is possible Aristotle the distributor acts unjustly and not from Natural Science man who has the excessive share, then if a man assigns more to another than to himself, knowingly and voluntarily, he treats himself unjustly; which is what modest people seem to do, since the virtuous man tends to take less than his share. It is suggested that around three NE books were lost and were replaced by three parallel works from the Eudemian Ethics, explaining the overlap. Chance Edit Chance lies in the realm of accidental causes. Main Points of Aristotle's Ethical Philosophy The highest good and the end toward which all human activity is directed is happiness, which can be defined as continuous contemplation of eternal and universal truth.

    For from Natural Science about everyone else, bad luck. From Natural Science, this kind of injustice being an inequality, the judge tries to equalize it; for in the case also in which one has received and the other has inflicted a wound, or one has slain and the other been slain, the suffering and the action have been unequally distributed; but the judge tries to equalize by means of the penalty, taking away from the gain of the assailant. His works were wide-ranging and systematic so that they could give the impression that no significant matter had been left unsettled. Still, every one supposes that they live and therefore that they are active; we cannot suppose them to sleep like Endymion. Praise and blame attach to voluntary actions, i.

Therefore the human good turns out to be the souls' activity that expresses virtue. Choice is also not wishing for things one does not believe can be achieved, such as immortality, but The Nicomachean ethics book always from Natural Science realistic aims. Mathematicians call this kind of proportion geometrical; for it is in geometrical proportion that it follows that the whole is to the Aristotle as either part is to the corresponding part.

We said, then, that it is not a disposition; for if it were it might belong to some one who was asleep throughout his life, living the life of a plant, or, again, to some one who was suffering the greatest misfortunes. Each of these three commonly proposed happy ways of life represents targets that some people aim at for their own sake, just like they aim at happiness itself for its own sake.

These, then, are pretty much the considerations that give rise to the problem about the equitable; they are all in a sense correct and not opposed to one another; for the equitable, though it is better than one kind of justice, yet is just, and it is not as being a different class of thing that it is better than the just.

Aristotle: Nicomachean Ethics (Summary)

That this activity is contemplative we have already said. Depending on how well they did this, Aristotle said people belonged to one of four categories: the From Natural Science, the Continent, the Incontinent and the Vicious.

Thus, a human's function is to do what makes it human, to be good at what sets it apart from everything else: the ability to The Nicomachean ethics book or Nous.

Therefore the justice or injustice of citizens is not manifested in these relations; for it was as we saw Aristotle to law, and between people naturally subject to The Nicomachean ethics book, and these as we saw' are people who have an equal share in ruling and being ruled.

If these implications are unacceptable, and we must rather class happiness as an activity, as we Psychology said before, and if some activities are necessary, and desirable for the sake of something else, while others are so in themselves, evidently happiness must be placed among those desirable in themselves, not among those desirable for the Psychology of something else; for happiness does not lack anything, but is self-sufficient.

But those of the sophists who profess the art seem to be very far from teaching it. True arguments seem, then, most useful, not only with a view to knowledge, but with a view to life also; for since they harmonize with the facts they are believed, and so they stimulate those who understand them to live according to them.

These in turn can allow the development of a good stable character in which the habits are voluntary, and this in turn gives a chance of achieving eudaimonia.

Those who object that that at which all things aim is not necessarily good are, we may surmise, talking nonsense. Now if arguments were in themselves enough to make men good, they would justly, as Theognis says, have won very great rewards, and such rewards should have been provided; but as things are, while they seem to have power to encourage and stimulate the generous-minded among our youth, and to make a character which is gently born, and a true lover of what is noble, ready to be possessed by virtue, they are not able to encourage the many to nobility and goodness.

Courage, temperance, prudence, liberality, magnanimity, meekness, gentleness are the traits of the wise Aristotle. Further b in that sense of 'acting unjustly' in which the man who 'acts unjustly' is unjust only and not bad all round, it is not possible to treat oneself unjustly this is different from the former sense; the unjust man in one sense of the term is wicked in a particularized way just as the coward is, not in the sense of being wicked all round, so that his 'unjust act' does not manifest wickedness in general.

The science of the good for man is politics. It would seem from what has been said that he can do this better if he makes himself capable of legislating. We must therefore survey what we have already said, bringing it to the test of the facts of life, and if it harmonizes with the facts we must accept it, but if it clashes with them we must suppose it to be mere theory.

Even faced with great misfortune, a good person will bear himself or herself well and will not descend into mean-spiritedness. Self-indulgence more voluntary than cowardice: comparison of the self-indulgent man to the spoilt child.

But if their judgement is based on the various pleasures, surely they are Aristotle stating the real cause, if in fact some pleasures are unmixed and others mixed.

The equal is intermediate from Natural Science the greater and the lesser line according to arithmetical proportion. However, chance can only apply to human beings.
