The paper concerns on the meaning of the mean in the Nicomachean Ethics by Aristoteles which may mislead us to the mediocre senses. These misunderstandings are to be examined under the six Confucian notions of it. First of all, the notion of the middle state has been settled for the arguments. The secularity and mediocrity cannot be considered as the valid sense of the Mean from the argument in the paper. Particularly the Aristotelian sense of Mean is seen and has been fallen into the intellectualist tone, whereas the Confucian is seen as focused on the phronesis tone. Above all, this paper is to contribute to the ordinary sense and uses of the Mean derived from the East and the West with which we cannot mislead ourselves any more.
