Ethics of any kind basically assume that all human,beings by nature aim at happiness. However, this general starting point has to be made concrete in order to be relevant for action, and hence suitable for moral appreciation:. What does my happiness consist in? Contrary to what has often bean taken for granted, the concrete aim is not instrumental or subsidiary to the overall aim of happiness. To me, My particular aim is rather identical with happiness. The choice I make - if choice it is - indeed constitutes my happiness, i.e. the overall-aim that. directs my existential choices.
