Aristotle on Virtue as the Mean (Nichomachean Ethics bk. 2) – Philosophy Core Concepts


This is a video in my new Core Concepts series — designed to provide students and lifelong learners a brief discussion focused on one main concept from a classic philosophical text and thinker.

This Core Concept video focuses on Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics, book 2, in particular on the notion of moral virtues as mean or middle states between vices of excess and of deficiency.
