1 Theory of Forms
Everything in this world is a mere imitation of an ideal form that really
exists in Eternity.
Aristotle: Form is a component of matter.
Plato: We should seek eudemonia in the next life, in Eternity. This life and certainly this world impede our search for eudemonia.
Aristotle: We should seek eudemonia
in this life as well as the next.
