Overview

THE ETHICS OF ARISTOTLE is one half of a single treatise (of which his POLITICS is the other half). Both deal with one and the same subject. This subject is what Aristotle calls in one place the "philosophy of human affairs;" but more frequently Political or Social Science. In the two works taken together we have their author's whole theory of human conduct or practical activity, that is, of all human activity which is not directed merely to knowledge or truth.

Meet the Author

Aristotle (384 BC-322 BC) was a Greek philosopher and teacher. Together with Socrates and Plato, Aristotle is one of the fathers of Western Philosophy. Born in Stageira in northern Greece, his father (Nicomachus) was the personal physician to King Amyntas of Macedon. Aristotle (meaning 'the best purpose') was raised as a member of the aristocracy. Aristotle went to Athens at eighteen to continue his education, where he became a student of Plato. In 343, Aristotle was invited to tutor Alexander, son of Phillip II of Macedon (Alexander the Great). While Aristotle's writings covered many subjects, they were the first to create a comprehensive system of Western philosophy, encompassing morality, aesthetics, logic, science, politics, and metaphysics.
