Hutcheson reduces practical rationality to instrumental reason because he remains loyal to the theory of ideas. In certain texts, he bases this reduction on Aristotle. The aim of this paper is to set out the points in which Hutcheson wrongly interprets Aristotle, thus showing Hutcheson's ignorance in regard to nous as an intellectual principle that allows the establishment of moral ends. According to Hutcheson, the original elements of mind can only be found in the sensibility.
