In Section 5 of Book I of the Nicomachean Ethics, Aristotle tries to clear the way for his own account of eudaimonia (often translated as “happiness,” but better translated as —living well, flourishing, thriving, success, etc.)
by arguing against three of the major things (or lifestyles) that people of his day assumed would bring them (or would perhaps be) eudaimonia: (1) sense pleasures, (2) fame or high social status (he calls it “honor,” but we know what he means…), and (3) money-making. (Not much different than our world, is it?)
Choosing just one of these three, and tell us why you agree or disagree with it. Please quote a section from the reading above your rewording.
