Title: Technē and Phronesis in Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics
Authors: Pollnow, Audrey
Advisors: Morison, Benjamin
Department: Philosophy
Class Year: 2013
Abstract: This paper considers Aristotle’s account of technē (craft-knowledge) and the relationship it bears to phronesis (the capacity for excellent ethical deliberation). Neither techne nor phronesis are exclusively intellectual: both require practice and an evaluative capacity. Phronesis, however, structures a person’s desires more than a techne can.
