|Bubner I 165
Practice/Aristotle: No action is done for its own sake, with the exception of the game.
((s) Then victory is a step outside of the game.)
Aristotle: otherwise, the goals would hinder the flow of practice merely by virtue of their plurality through competition, blockades, undecidable alternatives, etc. An order becomes necessary.
No for-the-sake-of-which is isolated, but it rather points to a larger one. The hierarchy, however, would miss the mark if there was no supreme good, which can still be realized in practice._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
