Øyvind Rabbås is Professor of Philosophy at the University of Oslo, Norway. He specializes in ancient philosophy, primarily Plato and Aristotle, and works mainly on their ethics and moral psychology. His publications include papers on Socratic definition in Plato’s early dialogues, and on Aristotle’s ethics. He recently co-edited and contributed to a collection of papers on ancient eudaimonist ethics entitled The Quest for the Good Life. Ancient Philosophers on Happiness (Oxford University Press 2015). Professor Rabbås is currently working on a major project on Aristotle’s practical philosophy.

Abstract
Aristotle has often been suspected of being an egoist in his ethics. The reason is that his ethics is eudaemonist: all my actions are, or ought to be, pursued for the sake of eudaimonia, which clearly must be understood as my own eudaimonia. Thus, even if virtuous behaviour, friendship, and political activity will be parts of my eudaimonia, all of them are ultimately pursued for my own sake; all ethically good conduct will therefore be grounded, directly or indirectly, in self-concern: a concern for my own good. I argue that this is mistaken, and the reason is that the notions of self- and other-concern in question are understood in terms of benefit – for others or for myself. Instead, I argue that we should understand the relevant kind of concern in terms of respect for persons (others or oneself) and their status – which may or may not manifest itself in beneficence. Respect for persons, moreover, is something that is grounded in community and joint action. In order to answer the egoism charge and account for the full notion of eudaimonia we must therefore grasp the central place occupied in Aristotle by the notion of community (koinōnia) and joint action, and a corresponding notion of the common good. This is what I attempt to do in my paper.
