Week 4 – Discussion Question #1
Aristotle believed that controlling our impulses and appetites made us morally virtuous. He also believed that a person's pleasures reveal his or her true moral character. By this, I think he meant that the act of giving in to our impulses makes us weak and cowardly; therefore, exposing our bad moral character (Moore & Bruder, 2008, p. 282). I do not agree with Aristotle regarding this specific belief concerning virtue and moral character.
