about

Sir Anthony Kenny presents a second edition of his landmark work The Aristotelian Ethics, which transformed Aristotle studies in 1978 by showing, on stylistic, historical, and philosophical grounds, that the Eudemian Ethics was a mature work with as strong a claim to be Aristotle's ethicalmasterpiece as the more widely studied Nicomachean Ethics. In this new edition Kenny offers a critical survey of developments in the field since The Aristotelian Ethics was first published. Kenny also addresses the criticisms of his first edition, both accepting those he sees as justified and addressing and refuting those which he feels are unfounded. Thebook remains essential reading for anyone interested in Aristotle's ethical works, arguably the most influential ever written.
Sir Anthony Kenny was part of Balliol College, Oxford from 1963 until 1989, first as a Fellow and Senior Tutor before becoming Master of Balliol. He subsequently became Warden of Rhodes House, President of the British Academy and Chair of the British Library.

Editorial Reviews

Review from previous edition: "In The Aristotelian Ethics Anthony Kenny uses the tools of philosopher, classicist, and statistician to solve the mystery of the true home of the books common to the Eudemian and Nicomachean Ethics. . . Kenny's project is ambitious, and there is much to belearned from its painstaking analyses of problem passages and its uncovering of neglected tracts in the Eudemian." --Nancy Sherman Marshall Presser, Journal of the History of Philosophy
