Aristotle on Developmental, Situational and Resultant Luck

  • Nafsika Athanassoulis

Abstract

Admittedly, the cases of Claggart and Billy are rather extreme examples. By far more common examples are those of agents who have a mixture of good and bad natural tendencies and could develop in either good or bad ways depending on the influences they receive. Developmental luck relates to all the contingencies encountered which affect factors leading to an agent’s moral development.
