Do you think Aristotle’s moral philosophy helped to explain number of social malpractices and failure in administration in India?
Aristotle thought that virtues are habits and good life is a life of mindless routine. So his theory, like Plato focuses on virtue, recommending the virtuous way of life by its relation to happiness. According to Aristotle, virtue is a mean. The mean is a state of clarification and apprehension in the midst of pleasure and pains. This allows one to judge what seems most truly pleasant or painful. Achieving good character is a process of clearing away the obstacles that stand in the way of achieving full efficacy of the soul.
