Aristotle, Nicomachean Ethics, I.1 “Every art and every inquiry, and similarly every action and pursuit, is thought to aim at some good; and for this reason the good has rightly been declared to be that at which all things aim. But a certain difference is found among ends; some are activities and others are products apart from the activities that produce them.” This account is teleological , i.e., everything happens for and in relation to ends.

Separate Ends “Where there are ends apart from the actions, it is the nature of the products to be better than the activities. Now, as there are many actions, arts, and sciences, their ends also are many; the end of the medical art is health, that of shipbuilding a vessel, that of strategy victory, that of economics wealth.” Wednesday, February 3, 2010
