With regard to anger also there is an excess, a deficiency, and a mean. This is understood to be referring to Plato and his school, famous for what is now known as the Theory of Forms. Say some work is completely bleak and nihilistic, but that this nihilism is motivated by humanistic concerns. Aristotle points to the fact that many aims are really only intermediate aims, and are desired only because they make the achievement of higher aims possible.

    For it is possible to desire honour as one ought, and more than one ought, and less, and the man who exceeds in his desires is called ambitious, the man who falls short unambitious, while the intermediate person has no name. Ames and Henry Rosemont, "Confucian normativity is defined by living one's family roles to maximum effect. This is the first case mentioned, and it is mentioned within the initial discussion of practical examples of virtues and vices at b Book IV. To entrust to chance what is greatest and most noble would be a very defective arrangement. Let us separate, then, things good in themselves from things useful, and consider whether the former are called good by reference to a single Idea.

    And one might ask the question, what in the world they mean by 'a thing itself', is as is the case in 'man himself' and The art of ethics book a particular man the account of man is one and the same. Most people are misled by pleasure, "for it seems to them to be a good, though it is not". Things that are exchanged need to be somehow comparable. Similarly the excellence of the horse makes a horse both good in itself and good at running and at carrying its rider and at awaiting the attack of the enemy.

Or as eye, hand, foot, and in general each of the parts evidently has a function, may one lay it down that man similarly has a function apart from all these? Certainly as sight is in the body, so is The art of ethics book in the soul, and so on in other cases.

In terms of what is best, we aim at an extreme, not a mean, and in terms of what is base, the opposite. This is understood to be referring to Plato and his school, famous for what is now known as the Theory of Forms. Not only will human happiness involve reason, but it will also be an active being-at-work energeianot just potential happiness.

Note that ignorance of what aims are good and bad, such as people of bad character always have, is not something people typically excuse as ignorance in this sense.

I find his treatment of this thoroughly satisfying. This may also help to establish what types of conditions allow for value-inversion. Aristotle says that such a person would also be a serious spoudaios human being, in the same sense of "serious" that one contrasts serious harpists with other harpists.

For it is possible to desire honour as one ought, and more than one ought, and less, and the man who exceeds in his desires is called ambitious, the man who falls short unambitious, while the intermediate person has no name.

Aristotle: Nicomachean Ethics Summary and Analysis of Book Five

I mean moral virtue; for it is this that is concerned with passions and actions, and in these there is excess, defect, and the intermediate.
