The paper will attempt to show how Aristotle’s reflections can be used in rethinking the relationship between time and practical choice. The analysis will be divided into three parts: 1. an outline of the principal questions relating to time in Physics IV; 2. an analysis of the Aristotelian concept of time applied to human beings; and 3. the ethical implications that ensue. By looking at the Aristotelian interpretation of time in the Physics, we can formulate a new reflection on the present that can be a guide in practical choice and help us create a less alienating relationship with the present.
