Editorial Reviews

Marked by moderation . . . apply insights from Aristotle's metaphysics to his ethics and politics . . .
. . . high level of scholarship . . . as well as the fact that the majority are unpublished, makes the volume desirable.
Panayot Butchvarov
It is unparalleled as an aid to our understanding the relationship between Aristotle's Metaphysics and his Ethics, and thus Aristotle's philosophy in general. The essays are excellent, many by distinguished authors, and they connect with each other not just thematically.
Reginald Allen
A helpful and valuable collection of articles on Aristotle's Ethics and Metaphysics.
Alasdair MacIntyre
This is a splendid collection of first-rate essays, essential reading not only for those interested in how Aristotle's Ethics relates to his Metaphysics, but for all serious students of Aristotle.
