Aristotle (384 BC – 322 BC) posited an ethical system that may be termed Self-Realizationism. In Aristotle's view, when a person acts in accordance to his nature, and realizes his full potential he will do good and be content. At birth a baby is not a person, but a potential person. To become a real person the child's inherent potential must be realized. Unhappiness and frustration are caused by the unrealized potential of a person, which leads to failed goals and a poor life. Aristotle said, Nature does nothing in vain.; therefore, it is imperative for persons to act in accordance to their nature, and develop their latent talents, so that they can be content and complete. Happiness was held to be the ultimate goal, while all other things — such as Civic Life, or wealth — are merely means to that end. Self-realization — the awareness of one's nature and the development of one's talents — is the surest path to happiness.1

Aristotle asserted that man had three natures: vegetable, physical/metabolism; animal, emotional/appetite; rational, mental/conceptual. Physical Nature can be assuaged through exercise and care, Emotional Nature through indulgence of instinct and urges, and Mental Nature through Human reason and developed potential. Rational development was considered the most important, because it is essential to philosophical self-awareness and uniquely Human. Moderation was encouraged, with extremes seen as degraded and immoral; for example, courage is the moderate virtue between the extremes of cowardice and recklessness. Man should not simply live, but live well, with conduct governed by moderate virtue. This is regarded as difficult, because virtue denotes doing the right thing, to the right person, at the right time, to the proper extent, in the correct fashion, and for the right reason.2
