We will try to understand a passage in th Nicomachean Ethics (I, 6), where Aristotle considers the word "goodness" a homonymy. In what sense we use the word "good"? Indeed, it can be said about many things, all very different (for example: good boy, good life, good house etc.). Although the differences, these cases seems to have something in commun. To undestand how Aristotle posits and solves that question, is necessary to study several theorys of his thought, like homonymy, analogy and final cause, as well as the critic to the platonism, once is during the critical of the goodness on Plato that begin such question. By rigorous lecture, not concluding nothing that do not have endorsment in the texts, we will study that passage looking at others treatises, mainly Ethica Eudemia, Physica and the Categoriae.
