    Function, Intuition and Ends in Aristotle's Ethics.Roopen N. Majithia - 2006 - Ethical Theory and Moral Practice 9 (2):187-200.
    This essay attempts to show why deliberation is not of ends for Aristotle, not only because deliberation is concerned with means, but because ends are grasped by wish. Such wishing, I argue, is a form of rational intuition that is non-discursive and analogous to seeing and therefore not at all like the discursive thought involved in deliberation. Such a reading also helps shed light on the nature of contemplation and therefore on happiness in Aristotle.

    On the Eudemian and Nicomachean Conceptions of Eudaimonia.Roopen Majithia - 2005 - American Catholic Philosophical Quarterly 79 (3):365-388.
    The gathering consensus on the inclusive/exclusive debate regarding happiness in the Nicomachean Ethics seems to be that both sides of the story are partly right. For while the life of happiness (understood as the total life of an individual) is inclusive of ethical and contemplative virtue among other things, the central activity of happiness is exclusively contemplation. The discussions of the Eudemian Ethics, on the other hand, seem to suggest that this text is broadly inclusive. The view I defend here (...)

    Śaṇkara on Action and Liberation.Roopen Majithia - 2007 - Asian Philosophy 17 (3):231-249.
    In this paper I attempt to understand the implications of a kara's claim that liberation is not an action. If liberation is not an action, how is it up to us and therefore our responsibility? What role do actions have in a life concerned with liberation? The key to understanding a kara's view, I suggest, requires broad reflection on his claim in his commentary on Brahma S tra I.1.4 that cessation of action in accordance with Vedic prohibition is not an (...)
