Here is a prompt for the essay on Aristotle’s ethics–essentially all I am looking for is just a detailed explanation of his ethics and this (I would propose) will demand a bit of research on your part. Please remember to cite any sources you use, and cite them properly. As with the other topics, if there is some particular issue you would rather write on that is directly related to the topic feel free to do so. I only ask that you discuss it with me first (and bring a clearly stated prompt with you when you do).
Aristotle proposes that happiness is the greatest good for a human life and argues that ethics is essentially the science of achieving happiness. What is his argument and how does he explain “excellence” in human living?
