Discussion 1: Aristotle/Confucius
For the discussion, complete these tasks:
1. Answer the discussion prompt in 6-8 sentences.
Discussion prompt: Do you agree with Aristotle that virtue is a mean between two extremes? Why or why not? Give a real-world example related to your research topic as part of your answer.
Required quote: In addition, give and comment on a direct quote from the Aristotle reading as part of your initial post. The assigned part of the reading starts with the paragraph near the middle of Chapter 2 that reads “Book II. Virtue, then, being of two kinds…” Do not quote from the first half of Chapter 2, since we are not reading that part. Put your quote in quotation marks with the in-text citation (Aristotle, ca. 350 B.C.E/2010, Book II, section ___).
