Ethical practices are ethical in the sense that they represent the work that actors do in order to “make themselves into subjects of esteemed qualities or kinds” (Faubion 2011: 3). They are practical in an Aristotelian sense. In his approach to practice, Faubion (2001) argues, Foucault extends the Aristotelian distinction between doing and making. Aristotle draws this distinction by suggesting that “doing and making are generically different, since making aims at an end distinct from the act of making, whereas in doing the end cannot be other than the act itself: doing well is in itself the end” (Aristotle 1934: 337).
