There is a resurgence of interest in Aristotle's ethical theory, and this book contributes to the debate by asserting that, in Aristotle's view, excellence of character is constituted both by the sentiments and by practical reason. Throughout the arguments of the book, Nancy Sherman issensitive to contemporary moral debates, and indicates the extent to which Aristotle's account of practical reason provides an alternative to theories of impartial reason.

`she offers an excellent account of moral perceptiveness and its relationship to the practical syllogism. Her book is the best survey I have come across of these crucial areas of Aristotle's moral theory ... well worth reading.'The Heythrop Journal
