Hey /lit/, how does Aristotle reconcile the idea of fate with his Nichomachean Ethics? The Nichomachean Ethics being practical philosophy. I ask because I was reading The Metaphysics of Morals and Kant tells us that to have practical philosophy we must have free will. The Greeks believed in the power of fate, which conflicts with free will. I just don't get how practical philosophy can exist if the fates control our actions, like the Greeks believed.
