Description
Hailed by Dante as "the master of those who know," the Greek philosopher Aristotle (384-322 B.C.) surveyed every field of learning known to the ancient world and pioneered the sciences of psychology and logic. A disciple of Plato and the tutor to Alexander the Great, Aristotle was a prolific writer, although many of his works have been lost. His treatises, used by the students of his famous Athenian school, the Lyceum, exerted a profound and lasting influence on Western thought. Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics is one of the world's great books. Identifying happiness as the goal of life, he rejects pleasure, fame, and wealth as means to it. The summit of human achievement is attainable only through the contemplation of philosophic truth, because this practice exercises the virtue peculiar to the human being, the rational principle. This inexpensive edition of a philosophical landmark will prove an invaluable resource to students and general readers alike.

display_description Composed of ten books and based upon Aristotle's own notes from his lectures at the Lyceum, "Nicomachean Ethics" holds a pre-eminent place amongst the ancient treatises on moral philosophy. As opposed to other pre-Socratic works, "Nicomachean Ethics" moves beyond the purely theoretical analysis of moral philosophy by examining its practical application. Aristotelian ethics is concerned with how an individual should best live their life and at its core asserts the idea that the most virtuous life will be the happiest one. By living well, in balance with one's environment, eschewing excess, guiding one's life by reason, Aristotle argues, is the path towards the most virtuous and thus the happiest life. Aristotle's ethical philosophy had a profound influence on ancient civilization, an influence that was sustained until the rise of Christianity which contradicted the premise of Aristotelian ethics by asserting that the most virtuous life was to be achieved instead by living an austere life of sacrifice devoted to God. This edition follows the translation of W. D. Ross and includes an introduction by R. W. Browne.
