This essay will outline Aristotle's views on the subject of happiness, and offer a critique emphasising the way in which his definition of the human function can be seen to be deficient in some key ways. Specifically, I will address the question of how Aristotle neglects to value non-intellectual modes of life in his assessment of what it means for a human being to be happy.
