In this course, we will investigate Aristotle's understanding of the psychological states, processes, and acts that play central roles in his theory of moral psychology and the human good. Topics covered will include Aristotle's views on desire, emotion, pleasure, imagination (phantasia), deliberation, decision (prohairesis), weakness of will, and the formation of character. The texts that will receive the most focus are Aristotle's ethical treatises (Nicomachean Ethics,Eudemian Ethics), his psychological treatises (De Anima, De Motu Animalium), and the Rhetoric. By looking at these psychological states, we'll have a better understanding of what, in his mind, the good human life involves.
