1. In “Happiness and Virtue,” Aristotle makes a distinction between intellectual and moral virtues. What is the difference between them and where does happiness fit in this distinction? Also, in regards to moral virtues, give an example of a virtue that falls in the middle between the two extremes of excess and deficiency.


2. In her analysis of virtue ethics, prof. Zagzebsky discusses Aristotle in relation to Plato, Chinese philosophy, and Christian theology in medieval times. But her discussion of specific virtues raises interesting questions. For example, she states that Aristotle would not have treated humility and respect for all human beings as virtues but wisdom and high self-regard are taken by him as virtues. Make your best guess as to why Aristotle would hold such as position.
