Abstract

Aristotle's ethical theory tells us how happiness gives shape to the human life. Happiness containing within itself the effort toward the end especially manifests itself in using the tools, which will enable us to acquire our ultimate end, skillfully. This study aims to give a brief account of how the relationship between prudence and decision, which correspond to two of these tools, is established in his Nicomachean Ethics for understanding the conceptual framework of his moral philosophy.
