This article examines the differences and similarities between ancient ethics and modern morality by analysing and comparing their main defining features in order to show that the two ethical approaches are less distinct than one might suppose. The first part of the article outlines the main ethical approaches in Ancient Greek ethics by focusing on the Cynics, the Cyrenaics, Aristotle's virtue ethics, the Epicureans, and the Stoics. This part also briefly outlines the two leading modern ethical approaches, that is, Kantianism and utilitarianism, in more general terms in order to provide a sufficient background. The second part provides a detailed table with the main defining features of the conflicting stereotypes of ancient ethics and modern morality. Three main issues – the good life versus the good action, the use of the term “moral ought,” and whether a virtuous person can act in a non-virtuous way – are described in more detail in the third part of the article in order to show that the differences have more in common than the stereotypes may initially suggest. The fourth part deals with the idea of the moral duty in ancient ethics.
Don't make the TV your full-time focal point. Televisions, like smartphones, can deter conversation. Don't let your TV take away your valuable social connections. If you have the space in your home, move your TV to another room, such as a den. This way, you can actually live in your living room, whether that's talking to your significant other, kids or friends you're entertaining. If your TV must go in the living room, consider concealing it behind cabinetry. You can also partially or fully insert it into a wall niche or built-in and add doors, as shown here. Is your living room functional but not as inviting as you'd like? Don't fret. There are several simple ways to make it feel more like a room you actually want to hang out in.
