Aristotle's Conception of Virtue

 

Aristotle argues that the most important form of happiness consists neither in momentary

 

episodes of pleasure nor in long series of such moments,but rather in the happiness one can

 

take in old age in reflecting back on a life well-lived.

 

Please answer the following question:

 

What, according to Aristotle, constitutes a life well-lived, and how does his conception of this

 

relate to his conception of virtue and his ideal of virtuous action that avoids both "excess" and

 

"deficiency" but rather that realizes "a mean"?

 

This is a challenging question, so please begin discussing near the start of this lesson and

 

please discuss with your peers and work with your professor step-by-step to develop a clear

 

understanding of Aristotle's ideas. As you do this, please remember to quote and analyze

 

"crucial passages," to ask specific questions about concepts or argumentative moves that

 

strike you as important but that you do not fully understand. Finally, please be sure to discuss

 

carefully the discussion of virtue and of virtue within the context of "a complete life" that

 

occurs from the top of page 245 through the end of the excerpt from Aristotle's Nicomachean

 

Ethics.
