Material type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: Chicago The University of Chicago Press 2011Description: xiv, 339 p.ISBN: 9780226026756.Subject(s): EthicsDDC classification: 171.3 Summary: The Nicomachean Ethics is one of Aristotle’s most widely read and influential works. Ideas central to ethics—that happiness is the end of human endeavor, that moral virtue is formed through action and habituation, and that good action requires prudence—found their most powerful proponent in the person medieval scholars simply called “the Philosopher.” Drawing on their intimate knowledge of Aristotle’s thought, Robert C. Bartlett and Susan D. Collins have produced here an English-language translation of the Ethics that is as remarkably faithful to the original as it is graceful in its rendering.
