    “For the Most Part” Generalizations and Practical Wisdom.Shane Drefcinski - 2020 - International Philosophical Quarterly 60 (2):139-151.
    My objective in this paper is to contribute to our understanding of Aristotle’s science of ethics by defending two claims. There is a way in which generalizations hold only for the most part that is unlike any of the types of generalizations in the natural sciences that hold only for the most part. These ethical generalizations depict ideals that, although grounded in and perfective of our human nature, are only rarely realized.
