The author argues that Aristotle?s Nicomachean Ethics seeks to make its readers into better people, and that it does not merely discuss virtue, but also provides a blueprint for virtuous behavior. The author argues that if we apply Aristotle's ideas to our own lives, that we will achieve our goals.

From the paper:

"A good example of this would be the Nicomachean Ethics, themselves. Simply having read the Ethics is not enough; one must then continue studying (Aristotle's Politics, specifically) to understand what the real world applications of this learning might be. Then, one must go out into the world to demonstrate this learning. Doing these things will make one virtuous and spread the idea of being so to others and the entire process will become more and more easy through habit."
