Philosophy 201 Notes Aristotle on Friendship The differences between lack of selfcontrol and animallike behavior. People who lack selfcontrol aren’t bad Aristotle says friendships are essential to personal and communal life 3 different kinds of friends Fun Useful True and enduring Perfect friendship Those who are good and are alike in virtue and good to themselves Bad vs Good Aristotle on Pleasure For the sake of pleasure or utility bad men may be friends of each other Selfessential – not essential People need friends to be happy All seek pleasure – All desire life Life is a kind of activity A musical person by hearing melodies A lover of learning in thinking Topics from theoretical wisdom Pleasure deals with activity Musical people take pleasure in an active kind of hearing The contemplation of theoretical truth = highest happiness Highest happiness does not require friendship. Good of family conflicts – good of the state Pleasure differs in kind from each other and is not comparable Autonomy the ability to govern one’s self rather than acting out of habits or ideas instilled by others. Virtue habit excellence Eudemonia happiness Disposition made up of virtues habitlike tendency Sher, Bennett, and Aristotle All three agree in order to be good people have to be shaped and educated through examples of good people. Human vulnerability The thing that sets the stage for ethical living and thinking Any other kind of life is not human life and not what a human would want The Virtue of Generosity The Nichomachean Ethics Has to do with giving and taking things with monetary value Generosity should include three characteristics: The person who give should not expect something in return The person should give up something that has value to it, enough that someone could keep The person would give more than moral requirements or custom would leas anyone to expect Confucius Agrees with most of Aristotle’s philosophy He emphasizes education and training into a moral condition Stresses the need for the governing class to know the aim of life The Confucian “state of harmony” is similar to Aristotle idea on “proper” of feelings that are required for virtue.
