Criteria for Happiness in Nicomachean Ethics I 7 and X 6–8

Classical Quarterly 40 (02):421- (1990)
In I 7 Aristotle lays down criteria for what is to count as human happiness. Happiness for man is self-sufficient , complete without qualification , peculiar to humans , excellent , and best and most complete . Many interpreters agree that in X 6–8 Aristotle uses these along with other criteria to disqualify the life of amusement and rank one happy life above another
