What Are 2 Virtues That You Believe Are Important To Living A Flourishing Or Suc

What are 2 virtues that you believe are important to living a flourishing or successful life in Aristotle’s sense? Explain what goods in human life these virtues enable their possessor to fulfill. Provide examples of characteristic behavior that manifests these virtues, and contrast that with behavior that displays a lack of virtue. Does your examples confirm Aristotle’s view that a virtue is a mean between extremes of excess and defect? If so, explain what those extremes are; if not, explain why. Refer to this week’s readings and media to illustrate and support your claims. [NOTE: please do not select “magnanimity” as one of the virtues you discuss in your response; discussing “magnanimity” in relation to Aristotle’s ethical approach presents certain complications that we are, at this point, better off avoiding.]
