Prior to Ayn Rand, Aristotle was the only philosopher to present a rational, man-centered ethics. In this course Dr. Mayhew looks critically at the 
essentials of Aristotle's moral philosophy (especially as found in the Nicomachean Ethics).The topics covered include: reason and happiness; the conditions of moral responsibility; moral virtue as a mean; and the individual virtues, such as moderation, courage, generosity, and pride. Throughout the course, Dr. Mayhew notes the similarities and differences between Aristotle's ethics and Ayn Rand's.
