Aristotle's Virtue Ethics provide a valuable guide to living a good and fulfilling life which is still useful and practicable in the 21st century. But, unfortunately, his surviving treatises are often a challenging read even for the educated layperson.
This lecture discusses his own view of the moral edification which good drama can bestow, and asks what famous movies Aristotle would use, if he were alive today, to illustrate his principal ethical concepts.
