Question Nr. 38

How are we to answer Aristotle’s question in Problemata1917a.5

Why is it that some men spend their time in pursuits which they have chosen, though these are sometimes ignoble, rather than in more honorable professions? Why, for example, should a man who chooses to be a conjurer or an actor or an oboe player prefer those callings to that of an astronomer or an orator?
