    The object of deliberation is the same as that of intention, but the object of intention is the specific reason for which a person acts. We must be content, then, in speaking of such subjects and with such premisses to indicate the truth roughly and in outline, and in speaking about things which are only for the most part true and with premisses of the same kind to reach conclusions that are no better. And so the man who has been educated in a subject is a good judge of that subject, and the man who has received an all-round education is a good judge in general. This physical force he called extension, and described it, at first, as a substance, in the sense just explained.

    Therefore, while societies may not agree on their application of moral principles, they may agree on the principles themselves. Of the remaining goods, some must necessarily pre-exist as conditions of happiness, and others are naturally co-operative and useful as instruments. The desiring part of the soul should thus be in harmony with reason. Ethical theory[ edit ] While ethics defines the practice, Ethical Theory aims to not only generalize and sublimate ethical considerations but to think ahead, to be a continual process of reflection that provides different procedures and categories to determine what is ethically relevant to specific situations, and to project into the future considerations and precautions regarding ethics.

    The highest ends are ends in themselves, while subordinate ends may only be means to higher ends. Laws, on the other hand, are a system of rules that a society strictly imposes, and enforces. Nor, again, is he many-coloured and changeable; for neither will he be moved from his happy state easily or by any ordinary misadventures, but only by many great ones, nor, if he has had many great misadventures, will he recover his happiness in a short time, but if at all, only in a long and complete one in which he has attained many splendid successes. Galilean physics tended to regard the whole world of physical phenomena as the result of differences of motion or momentum.

Ethics. book

Are goods one, then, by being derived from one good or by all contributing to one good, or are they rather one by analogy?

But where such arts fall under a single capacity- as bridle-making and the other arts concerned with the equipment of horses fall under the art of riding, and this and every military action under strategy, in the same way other arts fall under yet others- in all of these the ends of the master arts are to be preferred to all the subordinate ends; for it is for the sake of the former that the latter are pursued.

Book 5, Chapters Therefore while one should expect perfect precision in a subject like mathematics, one should not expect ethics to be so exact, or doubt the validity of conclusions about ethics because their precision is not at the level of mathematical precision.

His main point however is the possibility of morality based on another principle than God. These remarks about the student, the sort of treatment to be expected, and the purpose of the inquiry, may be taken as our preface. But perhaps these subjects had better be dismissed for the present; for perfect precision about them would be more appropriate to another branch of philosophy.

Further, since 'good' has as many senses as 'being' for it is predicated both in the category of substance, as of God and of reason, and in quality, i. Common people equate happiness with sensual pleasure: this may be sufficient for animals, but human life has higher ends.

Clearly, then, goods must be spoken of in two ways, and some must be good in themselves, the others by reason of these. Let us examine this question, however, on another occasion; the self-sufficient we now define as that which when isolated makes life desirable and lacking in nothing; and such we think happiness to be; and further we think it most desirable of all things, without being counted as one good thing among others- if it were so counted it would clearly be made more desirable by the addition of even the least of goods; for that which is added becomes an excess of goods, and of goods the greater is always more desirable.

Everything that is praised seems to be praised because it is of a certain kind and is related somehow to something else; for we praise the just or brave man and in general both the good man and virtue itself because of the actions and functions involved, and we praise the strong man, the good runner, and so on, because he is of a certain kind and is related in a certain way to something good and important.

A common criticism of this theory is that intuition is considered an irrational process which made his theory controversial and not widely adopted. The board can also impose penalties if the teacher is found to be guilty of breach of the code of conduct. Now even this seems to have a share in a rational principle, as we said; at any rate in the continent man it obeys the rational principle and presumably in the temperate and brave man it is still more obedient; for in him it speaks, on all matters, with the same voice as the rational principle.

Among some peoples, a person suffers torment at having caused an accidental death, among others, it is a matter of no consequence. Now the mass of mankind are evidently quite slavish in their tastes, preferring a life suitable to beasts, but they get some ground for their view from the fact that many of those in high places share the tastes of Sardanapallus.

Similarly, he could not understand the various dependent, transient mental experiences with which we are familiar without assuming the reality of a self-existing, infinite and eternal consciousness, mental force, or mind-energy, which expresses itself in all these finite experiences of perceiving and understanding, of feeling and striving.

Therefore our account must be sound, at least according to this view, which is an old one and agreed on by philosophers. It is something previously deliberated upon, and is formed with reason or thought.
