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.
Why it matters, I think we can all agree on one thing: your home should be comfortable, right? But how do you define and recognize a comfortable space? Is it just about how plush your sofa is? Not just! It's also about how comfortable you feel when you are moving around or through the room. So no matter how fluffy your cushions are, your room should also feel comfortable when you're not sitting down. And this is where negative space comes in. Do the exercise and sit in your sofa for a minute but close your eyes. Does it feel nice? Probably! Now open your eyes. Do you feel as relaxed? Well chances are, if you have lots of things on the walls and lots of decorative pieces on the furniture, it won't feel quite as peaceful. By giving your brain lots of things to look at, you get it to work which goes against any feeling of relaxation.
Since the before post, we had the fireplace installed and the drywall hung, taped, and plastered. We (I) did the priming and painting ourselves to save a little bit of money. Somehow the room grew in size even though we bumped out 21″ from the wall. I guess that's what happens when you draw the eye up and wide. Let's talk about storage for a second. Because we have a tiny 3-yr-old that has toys spilling out her nose. Someone asked why we went for non-functioning wood as opposed to cabinets below the benches. It's a really good question. This may sound crazy, but I didn't want to add anymore storage. Because when you have more storage, you fill it. And just a couple steps away, we have plenty of storage for her toys in the dining room (reveal coming soon). A couple steps more, and she can get to the rest in the office. There's one hidden spot of toys in the living room though. Underneath that side table is a basket of legos. That's it.
