Plato and his student, Aristotle, disagreed significantly on the nature of morals. Plato believed that if you knew the good, you would pursue it. Aristotle believed that knowing the good was not enough, you also needed virtue to pursue it. In his work Nicomachean Ethics (Books I, II), Aristotle outlines a view of living a meaningful life that continues to shape philosophy.
