  • Abstract In Nicomachean Ethics, Aristotle proposed the idea of “phronesis”. Phronesis means someone can tell different situation before he makes a decision, and he knows how to analyze the priority from many things. In this thesis I chose five stories through narrative inquiry approach, and the research findings are:
    1. Identity change:
    When identity or position starts transforming, few of people can perceive the difference of the identity changing sensitively and make proper decision accordingly. By perceiving problems, self-reflecting and solving problems, individual would be capable to realize the necessity of changing identity and the best way of adapting which will lead to solution to problems. That is, the transformation of identity is phronesis.
    2. Awareness:
    Observation is one of essential elements to make best decision during various contexts. Cultivating this ability to become a prominent sales person through discovering object's preference and speculating ideas. Awareness is accomplished by observation through practice in every workplace.
    3. Learning from practice:
    According to Aristotle’s description on phronesis, it is accumulated from the experience of practice. However, a genuine phronesis needs introspection and continuous trial and learning as well to complete the concept rather than the practice alone.
