What People are Saying About This

Jeff Malpas

Tabensky's work brings together some important new ideas and approaches to the discussion of ethical theory - in particular in the amalgamation of an essentially Aristotelian ethical stance with ideas derived from the work of the contemporary American philosopher Donald Davidson. No other work treats the concept of eudaimonia or 'happiness' in such a contemporary fashion. This book will be of interest, not only to those working on happiness, or topics relating to Aristotelian or communitarian ethics, but to those who have a broader interest in ethical and political theory, personhood and human identity, or Davidson's thought.
