This paper treats on the origins of the concept of virtue, in Aeschines and in Aristotle, and the unsettled implications in the ancient greeksociety. In the beginnings, virtue was contemplated as a man-made device, as a human creation, in order to achieve happiness, eudaimonia, and this artefact (we call virtue) was, in some way, long ago, seen as opposed to the divine designs. If Fortune (God, Fate, Providence) already predeterminated who is going to be happy and safe and who is going to be unfortunateand helpless, then what does mean this presumptuous invention we call virtue, created for the purpose of obtaining those same gifts that only the Gods can provide? On the other hand, this short monograph is about the problem of the origin of technique and art, according to aristotelian thought. It treats on virtue, happiness and divine dispensation in Aeschines and in Aristotle.
