Sarah Broadie and Jacques Brunschwig has furthermore demonstrated that the context in which the Nicomachean Ethics is composed makes it exceedingly likely that Aristotle wishes to impress upon his wealthy and most likely socially and politically connected audience that an active life in the polis is not in fact the best form of life to follow, but that they can receive the greatest benefit from engaging in the type of contemplative life Aristotle teaches Following the philosophical life makes us immortal to the extent possible in that it makes our activity qualitatively approximate God, allowing us to experience similar effects of happiness and freedom to God.
Not only does Aristotle believe divine entities and God itself to be the highest objects of philosophical inquiry and metaphysical principles in their own right, he understands the life devoted to theoretical contemplation as approximating the state of the diving being. Ancient philosophers did not separate religion as a form of activity distinct from their own, and our understanding of ancient philosophy is best served by recognizing the central place ideas of divinity held for them.
