An under appreciated gem.After reading Henry Veatchs "Rational Man - a modern interpretation of aristotelian ethics" I got interested in going to the main sources in order to answer the question: Can Aristotle offer a real alternative ethical theory from Kant or Bentham? After reading EE my answer is yes and let me explain why. Contrary to modern ethical philosophers Aristotle often starts his inquiry by looking at what people actually tend to value and from there builds his theory. His main poi [...]

This is a wonderful philosophical text that engages and stirs up the depth and breadth of human capacity for eudaimonia. It challenges our cultural, thin notions of happiness and promotes human agency toward activities (breathing--living function) and embodiment of mean internal goods (virtues) to include moral virtues, justice, intellectual, pleasure, and friendship. Today Eudemian Ethics offers and supports a virtue/strengths/character framework (the good or noble life )and development above ( [...]

"O Homem MagnânimoO homem magnânimo deseja ocupar-se de poucas coisas, e estas têm de ser verdadeiramente grandes aos seus próprios olhos, e não porque outros assim pensem. Para o homem dotado de uma alma grande, a opinião solitária de um único homem bom conta mais que a opinião de uma multidão. Foi o que disse Antífon, após a sua condenação, quando Agatão o cumprimentou pelo brilho de sua autodefesa".

People seldom ask "what's your favorite Aristotelian ethics", but if someone ask me I would probably rate this one as the best. It addresses the central questions on how to live a good and rewarding life in a way that's, I think, far clearer than the Nicomachean Ethics. The translation is also quite readable. To read and enjoy.

Eudemian Ethics by Aristotle and translated by Anthony Kenny describes how one is to live a happy life. The reason why someone strives to live a virtuous life according to Aristotle has to due with the pursuit of happiness. The goal of life is to be happy but Aristotle defines happiness not by material means such as we often do today but instead by seeking either knowledge, virtue or pleasure. While pleasure is often given as the greatest cause of happiness Aristotle would say that this happines [...]

Nelle tre opere che compongono l'Etica di Aristotele ci si chiede "è possibile essere felici? se sì, come?". E il primo argomento affrontato, qui nell'Etica Eudemea, è l'amicizia. Cos'è l'amicizia? L'uomo felice ne ha bisogno?Buona lettura.

This book of reflections on character by Aristotle has always gotten second billing to his Nicomachean Ethics. While this book has its defenders--primarily Anthony Kenny, the translator--it has never been studied or read as carefully. It has 3 of its 8 books in common with the NE, and it differs somewhat in its other 5 books. It has generally been considered Aristotle's earlier thoughts, but no one has ever made a convincing case. The ways in which it differs from NE are occasionally interesting [...]

“Everyone who has the power to live according to his own choice should set up for himself some object for a noble life—whether honour, or reputation, or wealth, or culture—with a view to which he will govern all his conduct, since not to have one’s life organized with reference to some end is a mark of great folly. Above all, he must first determine in his own mind, with care and without haste, where in our human condition the good life resides, and what are the necessary conditions for [...]

Antique books are almost impossible to review. Aristotle was not some Classic author looking to sell millions of copies. He was interested, first and foremost, in his philosophy. Aristotle was the granddaddy of categories and this is the world's first compartmentalizer. His genius comes in being one of the first Western minds to attack a a problem by organizing it in a way that for 300 BC would have been unique.
