Project #82757 - Aristotle's "Nicomachean Ethics"

The following is the teacher's description and what she wants from the self reflection. The class is around medium level grammar usage. Attached will be the reading materials. 500 words

-----------------

"This week's reading of Aristotle is our introduction to virtue ethics, or "character based" ethics.  Aristotle specifically refers to virtue as "the state of a thing which constitutes its peculiar excellence and enables it to perform its function well; in man it is the activity of reason and of rationally ordered habits."  A virtuous person then is a rational person who performs his function well.  In your Reflection, please explain what it means to Aristotle to be a virtuous person. How does he or she know how to act morally?  Is what is right and wrong the same for everyone in every situation?  Aristotle also believes that the virtuous person finds a balance between two extremes, excess or deficiency.  How does Aristotle believe this mean is determined?  Do you believe this is a reliable or practical way for individuals to determine right from wrong?  Reflections and responses are due by midnight Sunday, September 20th."
