Aristotle's Greek word kalon can mean beautiful and also morally noble. Does that mean that for Aristotle ethics and aesthetics are the same thing? When we in English have many different words to translate one word of his, does that mean that we are sensitive to differences he ignored, or that we are insensitive to similarities that were important for him?
