#MinorityFhilosopher: “The Final Cause of the Thing…?”

Aristotle says that one reason of causation is the end or the goal of something. He calls this the “final cause”.

The final cause can also be known as the expected outcome, end result, ultimate desire, or the fuel for your work vehicle.

There is no need to be busy if what you are busy doing isn’t fulfilling your needs. Our final cause should be our focus in our daily planning, our staff meetings and our product/services.

What Aristotle outlines in his theory of final cause, is our reason for activity.

Case-N-Point: Whatever we spend our time doing should always point to the final cause of the context in which we are doing it, otherwise we are wasting valuable time.
