Aristotle : Happiness And Virtue

What I expect to learn :

I expect How Aristotle explain Virtue and Happiness well.
Review :
Aristotle conceives of ethical theory as a field distinct from the theoretica
l sciences. Its methodology must its subject matter - good action and must respe
ct the fact that in this field many generalizations hold only for the most part.
We study ethics in order to improve our lives , and therefore its principal con
cern is the nature of human well-being. Happiness and virtue are the topic which
he chose. Happiness is something that cannot be found in pleasure. Virtue is so
mething that you earned from hard-work or intense training.
What we need, in order to live well, isa a proper appreciation of the way in
which such goods as friendship, pleasure, virtue, honor and wealth fit together
as a whole. In order to apply that general understanding to particular cases, w
e must acquire, through proper upbringing and habits, the ability to see, on eac
h occasion, which course of action is best supported by reasons. Therefore pract
ical wisdom, as he conceives it, cannot be acquired soley bu learning general ru
les. We must also acquire, through practice., thoser deliberatice, emotional, an
d social skills that enable us to put our general understanding of well-being in
to practice in ways that are suitable to each occasion.
What I have learned :
I learned that we should study ethics in order to improve our lives.
