He later, in 3.12, claims that just like a child who lives in accordance with desire needs to come under the guidance of a tutor, so too is the desiring part of the soul related to reason.In your essay clarify Aristotles view about the childlike nature of desire and its place in his account of the virtues. Optionallycompare and contrast Aristotles position to Freuds psychology in The Ego and the Id.

However, in Book 6 of the Ethics he apparently changes his position when we read that the practically wise person is not so with regard to some particular area but with regard to human life in general. In your essay defend the argument Aristotle makes in Book 6 and explain the reasons for this shift in perspective within the Ethics.
