Reacting against Plato's absolutism, Aristotle insisted that there are no definitive moral standards and that ethical philosophy must be based on human nature and experience.

Treating such topics as moral worth, intellectual virtue, pleasure, friendship, and happiness, The Nicomachean Ethics asks above all: What is the good life, and how can we live it?
