    In The Politics, Aristotle questions the compatibility of commerce and “the good life,” a lifestyle involving political participation, financial independence, and philosophical thought that culminates in the fullest development of reason and other faculties (3). In particular, he contests the view of Solon, an Athenian politician and firm proponent of commerce and trade, who believed that “no bound to riches has been fixed by man” (11). Aristotle provides three reasons to combat Solon: the scarcity of all resources, the limitless greed of man, and the perversion of natural trade.

    If a person is born ugly or physically impaired, there is nothing he can do about that. Therefore, he/she won’t be able to become happy throughout their lifetime. Here, Aristotle’s theory also seems to fail because fulfilling human function fully should not entail things that are out of people’s control. For example, someone like Stephen Hawking, who even though exercised his rational soul, probably, to the fullest, would not be considered as Eudaimon by Aristotle. Though, he himself suggests…

The theme is the lifeblood of Fassbinder’s film and every scene calls attention to it, Bégaudeau holds his punch until the very end. In the last scene in the classroom a student approaches M. Marin — after the rest of the class has stated what they allegedly learned that year — and informs him of the truth, she didn't learn anything.

    The Way We Were When I was a kid, I used to pretend I was an agent, on a top-secret quest to stop the mal-intentioned leader of a powerful nation from detonating a bomb or winning a war, completing the final step in a somehow lethal trade agreement. In my imagination, there was no evil too big overcome, no plot too complex to be thwarted, no genius too clever to be out-smarted. And I was always the one to stop him, to figure everything out at the last minute and save the world. As an…
