Elvira Klapp Machiavelli and Aristotle: The Virtuous Mean
abstract | view |  rights & permissions
Examines a conflict found in the writings of Aristotle and Machiavelli considering steps towards a life of virtue and prominence. Aristotle puts value on happiness and welfare en route to a good life whereas Machiavelli is focused on the ability to use both good and bad action to control a situation. The author concludes balance of these qualities, a virtuous mean, is the most beneficial option, a notion that Machiavelli not directly but philosophically challenges.

Sydney To Freedom in Degrees
abstract | view |  rights & permissions
In this runner-up PLATO contest essay, Sydney To proposes that humans have free will due to human’s unique ability of self-ownership. As long as we are not inappropriately influenced, we can choose, progress, or influence ourselves appropriately. She cites our ability of self-control and self-revision as a representation of free will, which is a sufficient amount to make life meaningful.
