This article first examines the concept of "good design" in the context of virtue, with respect to the making/becoming relation, as part of knowledge turning into virtue and the concept of 'good', then compares it to the contemporary approaches of design - again with respect to the making/becoming relation. An explanation of how humans privilege themselves as a species by using nature as an instrument by means of design based on the contexts of knowledge and virtue will be attempted. The fact that humans learn and experience the ways of acquiring the knowledge of making, of protecting and transferring that knowledge on one hand, on the other hand, they attain the concept of virtue through the tool they have made that functions properly and completely will be discussed. In this way, how the context of knowledge and virtue produces itself in the principle of 'being' that is actually of humans will be investigated through the action of 'making'.
