1 Aristotelian ethics on Thu Dec 02, 2010 12:07 pm

Ethics as a subject begins with the works of Aristotle. In its original form, this subject is concerned with the question of virtue (Greek aretē) of character, the acquisition of which is in turn aimed at living well and eudaimonia, a Greek word often translated as well-being or happiness.[1] In other words, ethics is a systematic study of how individuals should best live. This study was originally coupled with the closely related study of politics, especially law making which has an effect on how people are brought up, which looked at the same question from the standpoint of the community. The original Aristotelian and Socratic answer to the question of how best to live was to live the life of philosophy and contemplation.
