'The book, which is available at an affordable price, will no doubt prove useful for the readership of undergraduate and postgraduate students for which it is primarily intended.' Phronesis
Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics, based on lectures that he gave in Athens in the fourth century BCE, is one of the most significant works in moral philosophy, and has profoundly influenced the whole course of subsequent philosophical endeavour. Topics covered include the role of luck in human wellbeing, responsibility, courage, justice, friendship and pleasure. This accessible new translation follows the Greek text closely and also provides a non-Greek-reader with something of the flavour of the original. The volume also includes a historical and philosophical introduction and notes on further reading.
