    It is not enough to know one or even two of these points; unless we know all three, we shall be unable to arouse anger in any one. Hence it has been well said about wrath, "Sweeter it is by far than the honeycomb "dripping with sweetness, "And spreads through the hearts of men. This is evidently a distinct fourth class. And also to those who are enemies to those whose enemies we are, and dislike, or are disliked by, those whom we dislike.

    But he proposes an ingenious method to tackle the question: just as we can come to know the properties and operations of something through scientific demonstration, i. Now from memory experience is produced in men; for the several memories of the same thing produce finally the capacity for a single experience. Thus, one can agree, with qualification, that "Aristotle here shows that mind cannot be a potentiality in the way that sensation is" p. We have discussed these matters more exactly elsewhere.

    A benefactor loves the person he has benefited because that person is, in a sense, his own work, and a way to extend his own existence and action. By moral qualities I mean virtues and vices; these also have been discussed already, as well as the various things that various types of men tend to will and to do. B1C1p2: Aristotle points out the fact that it is not clear how best to try to understand the fundamental principles of living things. First let us consider Good Birth. But as more arts were invented, and some were directed to the necessities of life, others to recreation, the inventors of the latter were naturally always regarded as wiser than the inventors of the former, because their branches of knowledge did not aim at utility. Chapter 4[ edit ] B1C4p1.

Analysis: Aristotle 's discussion of friendship implies his fundamental view of human beings as social beings. With the case of friendships based on virtue, there seems to some sort of upper limit to the number of friends because there is a limit to how many people one could nobly live together with.

This happened in the case of Ergophilus: though the people were more irritated against him than against Callisthenes, they acquitted him because they had condemned Callisthenes to death the day before.

It is plain from all this that we can prove people to be friends or enemies; if they are not, we can make them out to be so; if they claim to be so, we can refute their claim; and if it is disputed whether an action was due to anger or to hatred, we can attribute it to whichever of these we prefer.

That is why youths and rich men are insolent; they think themselves superior when they show insolence. For anger has to do with individuals. How, then, do friends help one another to progress in virtue? Descartes claimed the dream argument shows that knowledge comes from rational introspection.

He also noted that increasing the distance between the aperture and the image surface magnified the image. In demagoguery, everyone's voice is equal, and the rule of the majority has greater authority than the law.

And we feel particularly angry with men of no account at all, if they slight us. If they wrong others, they mean to injure them, not to insult them. Speaking generally, anything causes us to feel fear that when it happens to, or threatens, others cause us to feel pity.

The deeds or possessions which arouse the love of reputation and honour and the desire for fame, and the various gifts of fortune, are almost all subject to envy; and particularly if we desire the thing ourselves, or think we are entitled to it, or if having it puts us a little above others, or not having it a little below them.

It must be felt because the other has done or intended to do something to him or one of his friends. Friends appear to be the greatest of human goods. And towards those who do not try to thwart us when we are angry or in earnest, which would mean being ready to fight us. For to each thing there answers an entity which has the same name and exists apart from the substances, and so also in the case of all other groups there is a one over many, whether the many are in this world or are eternal.

But 2 if that which is later in generation is prior in nature, and that which is concocted and compounded is later in generation, the contrary of what we have been saying must be true,-water must be prior to air, and earth to water.

Those, then, are friends to whom the same things are good and evil; and those who are, moreover, friendly or unfriendly to the same people; for in that case they must have the same wishes, and thus by wishing for each other what they wish for themselves, they show themselves each other's friends.

But while he would necessarily have agreed if another had said this, he has not said it clearly. It is the opposite of fear, and what causes it is the opposite of what causes fear; it is, therefore, the expectation associated with a mental picture of the nearness of what keeps us safe and the absence or remoteness of what is terrible: it may be due either to the near presence of what inspires confidence or to the absence of what causes alarm.

Aristotle/On the Soul: Outline

And similarly, by this same argument, it was flavourless, nor had it any similar attribute; for it could not be either of any quality or of any size, nor could it be any definite kind of thing. Of destructive or painful evils only; for there are some evils, e. Also, praising people to their face, and praising extravagantly a man's good points and glozing over his weaknesses, and showing extravagant sympathy with his grief when you are in his presence, and all that sort of thing; all this shows the disposition of a flatterer.

He stated that, when the mind understands, it somehow turns in on itself and inspects one of its own ideas; but when it imagines, it turns away from itself and looks at something in the body something that conforms to an idea - either one understood by the mind or one perceived by the senses.Feb 08,  · ARISTOTLE: The Nicomachean Ethics - FULL AudioBook | Greatest Audio Books The work consists of ten books, originally separate scrolls, and is.

This material appears in his ethical writings, in a systematic treatise on the nature of the soul (De anima), and in a number of minor monographs on topics such as sense-perception, memory, sleep, and dreams.

Aristotle introduces a division into mind (nous) which he maintains is present generally in nature, between the active and the passive (DA a10–14). The active mind is compared to a craft, while the passive mind is likened to matter (DA a12–13).
