Ethics with Aristotle

Sarah Broadie (Contributor Webpage)

In the context of perspectives drawn from philosophy of action and from Aristotle's natural philosophy, the chapter examines the ambiguity of the Aristotelian voluntary, its connections with censure and responsibility, its defensibility by excuse of force or ignorance, its bipolarity, its connection with character formation, and its implications, if any, for determinism.

Keywords:   Aristotle, bipolarity, censure, character formation, determinism, force, ignorance, philosophy of action, responsibility, voluntary
