The Blackwell Guide to Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics / Edition 1

The Blackwell Guide to Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics consists of sixteen newly commissioned essays on one of the most widely studied texts in the history of ethics. The volume is faithful to the organization of the Nicomachean Ethics itself, discussing the human good, the general nature of virtue, the distinctive characteristics of particular virtues, voluntariness, self-control, and pleasure.

The Guide, with specially commissioned essays contributed by a distinguished international cast of scholars and an introduction by Richard Kraut, illuminates Aristotle’s ethics for both scholars and students new to the work.
