HASH(0xa1672480) out of 5 stars After cursory review, translation is lacking Jan. 31 2012
By Kristopher R Oneil - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
While reading several journal articles that quote Aristotle's Nichomachean Ethics, I thought that it was time for me to own a copy. I prefer digital for this (as it relates to school) so I can annotate and search for the quotes I read in journal articles. The problem with this edition is that it uses "non-standard" translations for key terms--I say "non-standard" in that none of the quotes in the articles I'm reading are searchable in this edition. However, at this price (.95 cents!) it is still worth it to own to read. I will have to decide if I need another version of this same book that uses a more common translation in modern academia.

HASH(0xa1d09f18) out of 5 stars No Bekker Numbers -- Beware Nov. 19 2013
By Ilsenstein - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This edition does not have the Bekker numbers, which are a kind of index of the lines of the text. If another publication or a lecturer refers to a line of Aristotle's text by its Bekker number, you will be at a disadvantage if you are using this edition.

HASH(0xa31e06f0) out of 5 stars Best translation available in English July 4 2009
By Alexander Petrov - Published on
Format: Paperback
One major choice about all books from antiquity is which translation to use (unless, of course, you can read them in original, in which case you don't need my advice). Aristotle's Ethics is available in many translations, but arguably that by W. D. Ross is the best. This translation has been recommended by two separate philosophy professors independently. W. D. Ross is an important philosopher in his own right. His book "The Right and the Good" is the definitive source for Ethical Intuitionism, which was the dominant moral theory in British philosophy for much of the nineteenth and early twentieth century and now enjoys considerable revival. Aristotle's Ethics is a direct precursor of Utilitarianism, of which Ross's Intuitionism is a mature form. W. D. Ross has translated not only the Nicomachean Ethics, but many other books by Aristotle. Thus, in his translation, you can rest assured that the translator knows the whole body of Aristotle's work and is an expert in the field of ethics.

HASH(0xa397c12c) out of 5 stars An ethical primer Nov. 17 2013
By L. Breech - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a first read for anyone involved in decision making, anyone. Fundamental in tone and application. Aristotle is as relevant today and when he walked the Earth. I am trying to incorporate this work into our school curriculum at an early grade, probably third grade as the need to learn ethics is so important in our children becoming good citizens. The job of teaching basic life skills seems to be placed on public schools in and ever increasing fashion. With both parents working in many cases and the time at home together so compressed, fundamental decision making skills appears to be relegated to a lower priority in the home learning environment. Follow-up interviews with graduated students brings to light their regret in not having learned better habits while they were in their local school.

Once you have fully understood Aristotle's writing, if that is possible, you will have a basic understanding the the need, function, and meaning of developing good ethics and the value they play in enabling one to reach their "Golden Mean" and truly enjoy all life's offerings.
