Abstract

Whether the purpose of defense for the means of being heated for thousands of years. For Aristotle, I agree that the goal is to target the action, although they may be divided into intermediate / instrumental, final / final and ultimate ends, which suggests that, in particular, the latter is determined or determined in accordance with the circumstances The extent of the problem. We have the purpose to give meaning to our actions and our lives. Contrary to the popular understanding of Aristotle, we can carefully consider the purpose and means. In general, the ultimate purpose is normative and therefore raises the question of whether they can defend other problematic means. The key to understanding is to realize that they are not generally neutral, but that the value they are given does not depend on the purpose associated with it. (Translated from Chinese)
