Important Note

Aristotle’s doctrine of the mean applies to virtues only. It is tempting to apply it to everything (How warmly should you dress? Well, warmly enough that you’re not cold but not so warmly that you’re hot) but that’s not how it works. To apply Aristotle’s approach to a situation, you first need to name the relevant virtue. You then should describe the excess and the defect. Remember that Aristotle thinks this is more or less common sense and that we typically have words that mean exactly these things.
