About the Authors
  • 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 markedly 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, offering seminal discussions of ethical issues that are practical in their intent. Topics covered include the role of luck in human wellbeing, moral education, responsibility, courage, justice, moral weakness, friendship and pleasure. This accessible new translation by Roger Crisp follows the Greek text closely and also provides a non-Greek-reader with the flavour of the original. The volume also includes a historical and philosophical introduction and notes on further reading.

    • Key work in the history of ethics and the history of philosophy more generally
    • New and readable translation which stays close to the original
    • Accessible philosophical introduction and notes on further reading

    Reviews & endorsements

    '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

    'A teacher looking for a single translation of the Nicomachean Ethics to use as a textbook, and a general reader who wishes to rely on a single translation of this work, will do well to choose Crisp.' Utilitas
