The justice or fairness approach to ethics has its roots in the teachings of the ancient Greek philosopher Aristotle, who said that equals should be treated equally and unequals unequally.

The basic moral question in this approach is:
How fair is an action?

Justice is giving people what they deserve.

Nicomachean Ethics is a philosophical work by Aristotle, one of the most influential Greek philosophers. It focuses on the topic of ethics and provides insights into Aristotle’s thoughts on how to live a virtuous and fulfilling life. The key points of Nicomachean Ethics include:

  1. Eudaimonia: Aristotle’s concept of eudaimonia, often translated as “happiness” or “flourishing,” is the central idea in his ethics. He argues that the ultimate goal of human life is to achieve eudaimonia, which is a state of well-being and fulfillment that comes from living a life of virtue and excellence.

  2. Virtue: Aristotle emphasizes the importance of virtue in achieving eudaimonia. He identifies two types of virtue: moral virtue, which involves developing good habits and character traits through practical reasoning, and intellectual virtue, which involves cultivating knowledge and understanding through philosophical inquiry.

  3. Golden Mean: Aristotle proposes the doctrine of the “golden mean,” which suggests that virtue lies in finding the right balance between two extremes. He argues that virtuous behavior is the midpoint between two vices, one of excess and the other of deficiency. For example, courage is the virtue that lies between the vices of recklessness and cowardice.

  4. Moral Responsibility: Aristotle believes that individuals are responsible for their actions and must take ownership of their choices. He argues that moral actions are the result of voluntary actions, guided by practical wisdom and moral virtue, and that individuals are accountable for the consequences of their actions.

  5. Friendship: Aristotle considers friendship to be an essential component of a virtuous and fulfilling life. He views different types of friendship, including utility-based friendships, pleasure-based friendships, and virtue-based friendships, and argues that the highest form of friendship is based on mutual admiration and the pursuit of virtue.

  6. Practical Wisdom: Aristotle emphasizes the importance of practical wisdom or phronesis in making moral decisions. He argues that practical wisdom is the ability to discern what is morally right and act accordingly in specific situations, taking into account the particular circumstances and context.

  7. Telos: Aristotle argues that everything in nature, including humans, has a telos or a purpose. He suggests that the ultimate human telos is the pursuit of eudaimonia through the cultivation of virtue and excellence.

These are some of the key points in Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics, which provide insights into his ethical philosophy and his understanding of the good life.

Nicomachean Ethics is a work of philosophy written by Aristotle in Ancient Greece. It discusses the nature of human happiness, the concept of moral virtue, and the role of the individual in society. Some of the key points of Nicomachean Ethics are:

  1. Happiness is the ultimate goal of human life, and all human actions aim at achieving happiness.

  2. Moral virtues are habits that enable individuals to act in accordance with reason and to find a balance between excess and deficiency.

  3. The concept of the “Golden Mean” is central to Aristotle’s ethical theory, which suggests that virtues are the middle ground between two extremes.

  4. Virtue is a product of habituation and practice, and it can be acquired through moral education and training.

  5. The moral virtues are related to the intellectual virtues, which include practical wisdom, scientific knowledge, and understanding.

  6. Aristotle emphasizes the importance of friendship and social relationships in achieving happiness.

  7. The role of the individual in society is to pursue virtue and contribute to the common good.

Overall, Nicomachean Ethics presents a comprehensive ethical theory that emphasizes the importance of reason, habituation, and social relationships in achieving human happiness and flourishing.
