A distinguished international team of scholars under the editorship of Carlo Natali have collaborated to produce a systematic, chapter-by-chapter study of one of the most influential texts in the history of moral philosophy. The seventh book of Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics discussesweakness of will in its first ten chapters, then turns in the last four chapters to pleasure and its relation to the supreme human good.
Carlo Natali is Professor of History of Ancient Philosophy at the Universita "Ca' Foscari" di Venezia.
