Ristotle, Nichomachean Ethics (Please see order instruction for specific topic.)
Consider Aristotleas account of the voluntary and the involuntary, and in particular of the relationship between prudence, deliberation, decision and action. Combined with his account of continence and incontinence, do Aristotleas views on these topics support a reading of the Ethics wherein a good life is at least based on a kind of mastery of feelings? Explain. Is there more to a virtuous life than simply mastering feelings or a?using pleasuresa rightly? If so, what?
