is a one of the branch in philosophy that conclude systematizing, defending and
recommending concepts of right and wrong conduct . Ethics are divided or had
been separate into two sub- branches that called ethics and aesthetics. Each of
them was concerned more about the values. Nowadays, there are more specific
about ethics regarding there are three area of study that focus on ethics which
is meta-ethics, normative ethics and applied ethics.
In Aristotle view, it was more focus at
normative ethics or it also called as prescriptive ethics. This ethics was concerned
about how things should do, which things are good or bad and is the action that
I am doing is right or wrong. So it can be say that this ethics was try to
create a rules and govern the human on every action. If it goes more specific actually,
normative ethics are divided into three main of categories that were
consequentialism, deontology and virtue ethics.
Aristotle put more emphasis on virtue
ethics. Virtue ethics also was divided into two and it were intellectual and
moral. Intellectual virtues result was come from teaching while moral virtue
was come from habit. As an example to explain more about virtue ethics, there a
kind person and this kind person truly kind in every situation in the lifetime
and there was no reason to he or she to be kind. He or she not become to a kind
person just to get attention or someone was push them to be kind but she or he
just became their own self to be a kind person.
Every activity has a last or final result,
the good and the best at which it aims and Aristotle argued that there must be
a highest good at which all human activity final aim or all human want the
ending to be like that. But the question is this end of human life could just
be called happiness or living well to be the good final of a human. If the
wealth or intellectual be a guide to say that a human was happy but why still
have a person who had intellectual knowledge stress and become not happy.
