Example text

Introduction 17 thinker sees in Falstaff an exemplar of the perfect moral attitude to one’s fellow human beings. I shall dispute both readings, and instead suggest that Falstaff is as cynical as Prince Hal about the value of his recruits. Yet that cynicism is also a kind of realism about the worth of human life. In the passage from Shakespeare, Falstaff, who has recruited a band of worthless rascals by conscription to fill the empty ranks in time for the forthcoming battle, declares to Prince Hal that the men are good enough for the purpose: falstaff.

Aristotle points out instead that the ability to remove one’s shoes, employ different kinds of cladding, and change the weapons and tools that one holds are positive advantages, and that nature has so designed the hand to be perfect for the use of tools. It seems clear that he sees the Protagorean story as an ideological falsehood directly opposed to his own teleological view of nature’s work. See below, Ch. 5 n. 42. ²² The two capacities are called dik¯e (justice or law) and aid¯os (shame or discretion).

The benefit clearly extends to all species equally, whether they are eaten by humans or by other kinds, and whether they are beneficial to humankind or not. The hare, for instance, is remarkable in being more fertile than any other beast, according to Herodotus. ¹⁶ Nature grants this privilege not because the hare is particularly valuable to mankind, or for any other purpose, but simply to ensure the survival of hares, because the hare is prey to a multitude of species of animal, birds and beasts as well as humankind.
