Surname:2 Question one Define what virtue is according to Aristotle. How many types of virtues are there? What are some virtues? As per Aristotle virtue refers to the attribute of mind that helps people achieve better living and further argues that it is also life in agreement of purpose (Wijnberg, Nachoem M). Virtues occur in two types of either intellectual virtues or moral virtues. Also Aristotle concentrates on moral virtues, which are the attributes of character. Aristotle’s reasonable account to explain what virtues were did not stop to it as a assorted collection to the list. Aristotle further attributed to the character that it is the portion of the mind and either for passion, a faculty or state of personality. Aristotle described the virtues as follows as they are part of mind. Passion is one of the traits Aristotle covered and attributes it to the body cravings either to the needs for sex, food or drink. These are the traits that are accompanied persons excitements plus any moods associated with pleasure or pain. What we find is these could not be virtues for reasons like; one cannot be termed as good or bad because of a specific passion, also a person doesn’t choose a passion but will find that a virtue will be related to our selections. It will not be possible for one to generally select what to feel or need. The other reason that virtues mainly are concerned with is how we get exposure to what affects us in order to feel and respond. A virtue is never the desire to motivate an individual naturally. Faculties are other traits that attribute to virtues, which are the things we see or make us nervous. These things could not be referred to as virtues because they are naturally gained but virtues are acquired by an individual.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
