The Good Life Justice, Virtue and the Conception of Good Life Justice, virtue and the good life have inherent relationships. A just society affirms to specific notions of virtue and morality that constitute the conception of good life1. According to Aristotle, justice entails granting an individual his or her rightful possessions deserved. However, it is important to determine the rightful virtues for which an individual should receive honor and credit. The best and well justifiable means of life is imperative to figure out the honor that an individual deserves. Aristotle maintains that humans cannot have a neutral law as pertains to concerns of good life.
In his attempt to define justice and the nature of good life, Plato maintains the necessity to reason beyond the constraints of routine life. Informed opinions should not distort the understanding of justice and the nature of good life. According to Plato, moral reflections about the nature of good life require convictions.
Other philosophers maintain that justice, as a fundamental principle, should not be based on concepts defined by virtue or good life. In a just society, everyone has entitlement to respect for his or her freedom. Everyone enjoys the right to have his or her understanding of good life.
There are contentions of the best virtues that individuals should honor and promote in life. Issues over the best way of life that individuals should embrace remain contentious. It is acceptable that virtues deserve rewards as promoted by the best way of life. Justice, as proven by most philosophers, involves virtue and choice of good life.
