Aristotle

 

Aristotle (c. 384-322 BCE)

“Justice is a sort of mean state, only not in the same way as the other virtues are, but because it aims at a mean, whereas injustice aims at the extremes.”

  • From The Nicomachean Ethics (Book V, section v, Bekker page 1133b) by Aristotle, translated by J. A. K. Thomson (Penguin Classics, 2004).
