not yet rated|write a review
Amongst the works of Aristotle, the Nicomachean Ethics stands virtually alone in speaking not only to classicists, historians of ideas, and technical philosophers, but to anyone trying to make sense of practical human ideals. In this major new presentation, Aristotle's most engaging work has been freshly translated by Christopher Rowe into perspicuous English. Sarah Broadie's accompanying commentary brings out the subtlety of Aristotle's thought as it develops line by line. (Such close exegesis is indispensable foranyone who seeks a more than superficial understanding of Artistotle's text.) Additionally, a substantial introductory section by Sarah Broadie sets out the main themes and interpretative problems in preambles to each of Aristotle's ten Books. This scholarly and instructive treatment of Aristotle's great work of moral philosophy assumes no knowledge of Greek and will be invaluable to students reading Aristotle's text for the first time. Its emphasis on understanding the import of the text at every point will make this an equallyindispensable resource for advanced students and scholars.

Editorial Reviews

`This translation by Sarah Broadie and Christopher Rowe is especially good because the language is so accessible. Whilst the language is straightforward it maintains the essential Aristotelian message: the job of humans in whatever community or society is to flourish, it is to be what they arewell.'Keith Hammond Adult's Learning, 01/12/02.
