In this paper, I investigate the different commitments held by ethics and morality. All too often, we use moral language to talk about ethics. I argue that this is a mistake insofar as the aims of ethics are incredibly different from those of morality. Through an investigation of Books II, III, and VI of Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics, I make a case for the merits of the dispositional model of ethics over the legalistic model of morality.
