This essay discusses Aristotle’s theory of action, and the changes in how philosophers think about action in the present and future. It highlights areas in which contemporary philosophy of action has moved to positions different from Aristotle. In the future, the study of action will continue to contribute to the breakdown of the administratively ordained boundaries between the various fields of philosophy.
