Nicomachean Ethics by Aristotle

<%PUBCOMMENTS%>Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics is the first systematic treatise on ethics, and two millennia after it was written, it is still among the best. It speaks to human beings about themselves and their relations to others as clearly, forcefully, and systematically today as it did when it was written. It would also be hard to over estimate its historical importance. Virtually every moral philosopher has to deal with the issues grappled with in the Nicomachean Ethics, and many of the positions argued for by Aristotle have been adopted, sometimes in an almost wholesale fashion, by other philosophers.<%END%>

About the Author:
<%AUTHORBIO%>Aristotle was born in 384 BC at Stagira in Thrace. He was the son of Nicomachus, a physician to the king of Macedonia. At about the age of seventeen, Aristotle went to Athens to study and become a member of the Academy of Plato. After Plato’s death, Aristotle tutored Alexander the Great before founding his own school, the Lyceum.<%END%>

This book is a gem. A must read for any couple who is expecting a child and for anyone looking to read on the good man and the good life for man. The book is brilliantly written to make a subject such as ethics easily understandable for anyone and makes so much sense you will ask yourself how you did not come to the same conclussions yourself. This translation is really well done and i wouldn't reference any other.
