Making the Connections
My research into the basis of Aristotelian ethics brought me a great deal of light and helped me to grasp the connection between ethics, psychology, and spirituality. Psychology helps us to understand human behavious and grasp the fears and blockages that are in us, in order to help us free outselves of them. Spirituality is like a breath of inspiration that strengthens our motivation. Ethics help to clarify what is a truly human act, what justice is, and what the best activities are--those that render us more human and happiest. -
