Ethics of Happiness



ARISTOTLE

How Should We Live? What Does It Require To Live A Good Life?
Man can only achieve happiness by using all his abilities and capabilities.

Forms of Happiness:
     1. Life of pleasure and enjoyment
     2. Life as a free and responsible citizen
     3. Life as thinker and philosopher

A person who only develops his body lives a life that is just as unbalanced as someone who only uses his head.

"Golden Mean" : We must be neither cowardly nor rash but courages, neither miserly or extravagant but liberal.

which are:  too little courage is cowardice, too much is rashness
                  not liberal enough is miserly, too liberal is extravagant

Just like eating, it is dangerous to eat too little, but also dangerous to eat too much!





p/s: anything but ordinary
p/s/s: am a big fan
