Summary
"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. It is soundly located within a philosophical tradition, but its argument differs from those of Plato and Socrates in its emphasis on the exercise - as opposed to the mere possession - of virtue as the key to human happiness. It offers seminal, practically oriented discussions of many central ethical issues, including the role of luck in human wellbeing, moral education, responsibility, courage, justice, moral weakness, friendship and pleasure. This new translation, by Roger Crisp, follows the Greek text closely and also provides a non-Greek-reader with something of the flavour of the original."--BOOK JACKET
