I’m trying to learn for my Philosophy class and I’m stuck. Can you help?
In Book IX, Chapter 8 of Nicomachean Ethics, Aristotle discusses two conceptions of self-love or selfishness. There is a common view of self-love or selfishness which he initially considers to be somewhat plausible, but after further analysis rejects as mistaken. He then describes another, more fundamental view of self-love or selfishness which he thinks is the correct one.
Describe the two conceptions of self-love or selfishness that Aristotle discusses. What role do reason and virtue play in each conception? What is Aristotle’s ethical evaluation of each conception? Do Aristotle’s views on what he considers to be the fundamental, properly understood nature self-love and selfishness challenge modern notions about this subject?
