Overview

In this translation of the Nicomachean Ethics, readers are free to thread their own way through Aristotle's arguments without adventitious signposts such as section-headings, frequent paragraphing, and numbering of points. For those who want additional guidance, or who desire to check their own interpretation against that of another, a line-by-line commentary is provided, attending more to how Aristotle's thinking works at each step than to criticism or to wider implications. To complement the close work of translation and commentary, the volume includes a long Philosophical Introduction which expounds and brings together the larger themes. An Historical Introduction rounds out the array of resources offered in this presentation of the Nicomachean Ethics. The whole makes the greatest of ethical treatises approachable by every sort of reader, without sacrifice of simplicity or of subtlety.

Aristotle deduced that happiness derives from the activity of the soul in accordance with virtue. Supreme happiness, according to this ancient Greek, is found only in philosophical meditation, but a secondary happiness is available in living a virtuous life. 8 cassettes.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'The book, which is available at an affordable price, will no doubt prove useful for the readership of undergraduate and postgraduate students for which it is primarily intended.' Phronesis

'A teacher looking for a single translation of the Nicomachean Ethics to use as a textbook, and a general reader who wishes to rely on a single translation of this work, will do well to choose Crisp.' Utilitas
