Boethius's short treatise On the Highest Good represents one of the remarkable and important variants of ethical aristotelianism, enriched in Boethius by neo-platonic and augustinian themes. The idea of the 'philosophical way', which exclusively can lead to blissfulness, encompassing theory as well as practice, was dismissed by theologians - counsellors of Bishop Tempier. The result was an edict published in 1277, which among others condemned the ideas articulated in the treatise On the Highest Good. On closer view it appears, however, that the 'philosophical way' does not contradict the Christian way. Contrary to Thomas Aquinas or Bonaventura Boethius as a 'professional philosopher' did not manage to include philosophy into the theology. However, this is not to conceive the two contradicting disciplines, but rather as two different perspectives on one and the same thing. Therefore they can not be in conflict.
