Aristotle argues that the most important form of happiness
consists neither in momentary episodes of pleasure nor in long series of such
moments,but rather in the happiness one can take in old age in reflecting back
on a life well-lived.
Please answer the following question:
•What, according to Aristotle, constitutes a life
well-lived, and how does his conception of this relate to his conception of
virtue and his ideal of virtuous action that avoids both "excess" and
"deficiency" but rather that realizes "a mean"?
