Aristotle's Ethics

We can say that the ethics of Aristotle, more than in other parts of his philosophical teachings (such as in "metaphysics"), at odds with Plato. It was in "Nicomachean Ethics" contains well-known phrase, which has traditionally given the nature of sayings: "Plato is dear to me, but dearer still is truth.” Aristotle noted that there is no science to benefit itself, but there are various sciences, studying the benefits in any area of life. When it comes to war, the benefit is defined strategy, if the disease - healing. Aristotle, like Plato sees higher benefit is not in sensual pleasures and material goods, but in spiritually satisfying, in the spirit, which arises from a sense line of duty, to human his appointment. Aristotle and Plato agree that the appointment of Rights is the self, his self-identity as a spiritual being. Aristotle agreed with Plato also on the need for the rule of reason over sensuality and lust rights. But more are significant differences between Aristotle and his teacher. Plato believed, the body as the dungeon of soul and sensual attraction as chains, restricting the soul. They reject the rights of its true purpose and carry away the entire low-lying and vicious. Getting rid of prize and passions by himself, through reason man is discharged from this world and flock to the ultimate reality. So, freedom of human, according to Plato, is to the rule of reason over the sensual attraction to freedom from physical reality. Aristotle believed sensual attraction and passion unreasonable properties of human souls. For the rule of reason over sensuality need not repudiation, not a means of ridding the world, as a condition for the correct choice of a man of his appointment, purposeful way of life and deeds. Improving rights must occur through educational activities, an active attitude towards reality and gain power over lust and passion. Aristotle criticized Socrates’ famous thesis "Nobody makes a scourge on their own" 6 - abstract, shared Plato. Aristotle believed that if you follow this argument, the man is not power over them and is not responsible for their actions. Ethics and Politics of Aristotle examining the same issue - the question of upbringing virtues and the formation of habits to live morally in order to achieve happiness, available to people in different aspects: first - in aspects of the nature of the individual. Second - in terms of socio-political life of citizens. For education virtuous lifestyle and behavior of one of morality is not enough, needed more laws that are enforced force. Therefore, Aristotle said that "public attention (to education) rose through laws, with a good mind - through good laws" 17.

Hi,
You need to divide it into the standard essay format.

Introductory paragraph.

A paragraph for each of your main points.

A concluding paragraph.

This makes it much easier for the reader to understand how you have organized your thoughts on the topic.

Please do this, and then repost your essay for our further comments.

Best wishes, Clive
Hi,
First of all I would like to thank you for your reply.
The problem is my essay should consist of only 400 words.
And as you know 400 words are not enough to write a good essay. This is my professor's rule.
Even though I know that I should dived it into the standart formate, but it is still hard to do it.
I will try to devide it as you said and post it again tomorrow October 20.
I would be delighted to receive your help. Emotion: smile
Cordially yours,
Alex

If I were you, I'd insert an extra gap between the paragraphs. It looks too cramped up!
