al-Farabi on Eudemonia - Dictionary of Arguments
Höffe I 128
Eudaimonism/a-Farabi/Höffe: Like Plato and Aristotle, [al-Farabi] represents an Eudaimonism which, like Augustine, is stripped of its genuinely political character but instead is of an eschatological-spiritual nature:
Perfect happiness, salvation, can only be achieved in the hereafter. Because a community that is as exemplary as possible is needed for the part that can already be achieved in this world, the political character is not completely lost in al-Fārābīs Eudaimonism._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
