""What Is the highest of all goods which are the objects of all action"" It is happiness.' Aristotle (1911) goes on to descriptionbe the concept of happiness. That the lowest conceive it to be pleasure, and hence are content with a life of sensual enjoyment. That the refined and the active conceive happiness to be found in honour, which is the product of a life in society. Finally, that happiness can be found in the life of contemplation, the working of the soul in the way of excellence or virtue of a certain kind. The stability imparted by virtue results in a man who is both stable and happy.
