Socrates Vs Aristotle

Satisfactory Essays
The great thing about being completely guided by the rational part of the soul is that once it orders everything, the other two parts of the soul can do their own thing; they can pursue whatever pleasure they're into, because the rational part will make sure everything is under control. In fact, that's the real problem with letting either of the other two parts of the soul take over: they don't actually understand what pleasure really is, so they end up leading you off in totally unpleasurable directions.

Socrates finalises his point by making his distinction between the types of pleasure which one can possess. He finalises his belief about the man of reason, by making the distinction between pure/positive pleasures and illusory pleasures.
