Most ancient Greek thought about the nature of human life was governed by two fundamental assumptions and these are the basis of Aristotle's approach to the study of ethics: That human life is comprehensible only when conceived of as being directed toward some end or good, and that it can be interpreted by a categorization of ends and means.
