MetadataShow full item record
This paper is to be a summary and interpretation of the conception of the nature of human happiness and the "good" life posed by Aristotle in his Nicomachean Ethics. It is written for the purpose of demonstrating this author's degree of understanding of Aristotelian moral philosophy, and is thus quite detailed and carefully throughout. Although this thoroughness may at times insult the knowledge of those who have already been exposed to Aristotelian concepts, it should nonetheless accommodate quite well readers unfamiliar with ancient philosophy and Aristotle but interested in his conception of happiness.
