Aristotle on Happiness & Function Argument

Posted by

A short clip of Peter Adamson discussing Aristotle on happiness (eudaimonia) and his famous function argument about the purpose of man which comes from his Nicomachean Ethics. In the process, Aristotle’s arguments against the life of fame and the life of wealth are touched on as well.

Aristotle was a Greek philosopher and polymath during the Classical period in Ancient Greece. Taught by Plato, he was the founder of the Lyceum, the Peripatetic school of philosophy, and the Aristotelian tradition. Wikipedia
