The Nicomachean Ethics

The Nicomachean Ethics

?One swallow does not make a summer; neither does one day. Similarly neither can one day, or a brief space of time, make a man blessed and happy? In the Nicomachean Ethics, Aristotle sets out to examine the nature of happiness. He argues that happiness consists in ?activity of the soul in accordance with virtue?, for example with moral virtues, such as courage, generosity a ?One swallow does not make a summer; neither does one day. Similarly neither can one day, or a brief space ...

    The Nicomachean Ethics, Aristotle The Nicomachean Ethics (Ancient Greek: ????? ??????????) is the name normally given to Aristotle's best-known work on ethics. The work, which plays a pre-eminent role in defining Aristotelian ethics, consists of ten books, originally...

    Ancient Greek philosopher Aristotle postulates the highest human good is eudaimonia or what is loosely translated into English as happiness. And a substantial component in the path to such human happiness is acting with the appropriate virtues over the course of an entire lifetim...

    I?m a bit annoyed ? I wrote up my review to this last night and thought I?d posted it, but it seems to have gone to god?not happy about that (amusingly enough). This is my reconstruction of last night?s review. There is a story that is almost certainly apocryphal about a F...

    The Nicomachean Ethics is one of the greatest works of Aristotle, the famous philosopher who was really much more of a scientist than a philosopher. This is the book where he indulges in the discussion of happiness, virtue, ethics, politics, and really anything else describing the way ...

    Aristotle doesn't satisfy your whole soul, just the logical side, but here he is quite thorough. The Nicomachean Ethics is his most important study of personal morality and the ends of human life. He does little more than search for and examine the "good." He examines the virtue and vi...

    This is a book worth rereading every few years. It is actually lecture notes by one of Aristotle?s students, as are most of the extant writings attributed to Aristotle. Not a work to be rushed through, the Ethics requires concentration and pondering, work that rewards the effort. ...

    "One lesson of our age is that barbarism persists under the surface, and that the virtues of civilized life are less deeply rooted than used to be supposed. The world is not too richly endowed with examples of perseverance and subtlety in analysis, of moderation and sanity in the study...

    Aristotle vs. Plato Having just finished and enjoyed Plato's complete works, I find this book a bit annoying and uninspiring in comparison. Aristotle seems to take every opportunity to "correct" Plato, when in fact he is only attacking a strawman. His arguments, sometimes self-contr...

    Happiness is the activity of a rational soul in accordance with virtue, writes Aristotle in the Nicomachean Ethics. Activity means living. Rational soul means a human being. And virtue means human excellence. So happiness means a human living excellently. How does one live excellen...

    It is rare that a philosophical book about ethics can be so investigation-based and have so much common sense in it. ...

    There's nothing I could possibly say about this book that hasn't already been said, and hasn't already been said better than I could articulate any point. The degree to which we have fallen from Aristotle's view of man is abominable. The need to which we ought to return to his view is ...

    Such an impressive book that it's honestly hard to do it justice. The philosophical distinctions that Aristotle introduces here -- the three types of friendship, hexis as the key to understanding moral action, the vice/virtue distinction, the spoudaios, etc. etc. -- are impressive enou...

    I dare say that if I ever come to read this again I would no doubt rate it higher than I have done here. Also if you are looking at this particular book then you already have an inkling as to it's purpose and what it is about. I'm no scholar, not by a long shot but found that a discipl...

    I actually read this previously within the larger context of an extended work, but I decided to revisit it because I felt that some of the ethical pondering in this work matched up with some life incidents that I was trying to review. I know that reviewing your life based on ancient li...

    Reading a book a week with a Goodreads group (the Ethica Nicomachea (EN) is divided into ten books), by the end I was exhausted, and took a long break before reading the Interpretive Essay, which, when I did sit down and read, I thought did an excellent job of pointing out some of Aris...

    This is an excellent edition if you really want to dig your teeth into Aristotle, Sarah Broadie's near line by line commentary is great. The translation is technical and might not appeal to you if the idea of an even drier Aristotle makes you wretch, but it at least makes things less a...

    The Nicomachean Ethics represents Aristotle?s search for how to live the virtuous life. The treatise doesn?t search for an abstract virtue in itself (like Plato), but rather for how to achieve virtue in practice. This is a necessarily inexact, almost pragmatic enterprise, and Ari...

    Aristote resserre dans un seul ouvrage une critique fraiche des thses de Platon. Pas de grands effets rhtoriques, de mises en scne ingnieuse, d'habilet didactique, le discernement et la mthode prennent nettement le pas sur l'esprit. Les thmes abords sont moraux: le cons...

    The Nicomachean Ethics is one of the greatest works of Aristotle, the famous philosopher who was really much more of a scientist than a philosopher. This is the book where he indulges in the discussion of happiness, virtue, ethics, politics, and really anything else describing the way ...

    Aristotle doesn't satisfy your whole soul, just the logical side, but here he is quite thorough. The Nicomachean Ethics is his most important study of personal morality and the ends of human life. He does little more than search for and examine the "good." He examines the virtue and vi...

    Aristotle's most polished book is still a diamond in the rough, and the student must still be the one to smooth the edges. It's not an easy task, but a worthy one, if only to admire the precision of his thinking. Aristotle is a scientist in style and personality, which raises a ser...

    The Nicomachean Ethics, Aristotle The Nicomachean Ethics (Ancient Greek: ????? ??????????) is the name normally given to Aristotle's best-known work on ethics. The work, which plays a pre-eminent role in defining Aristotelian ethics, consists of ten books, originally...

    Ancient Greek philosopher Aristotle postulates the highest human good is eudaimonia or what is loosely translated into English as happiness. And a substantial component in the path to such human happiness is acting with the appropriate virtues over the course of an entire lifetim...

    I?m a bit annoyed ? I wrote up my review to this last night and thought I?d posted it, but it seems to have gone to god?not happy about that (amusingly enough). This is my reconstruction of last night?s review. There is a story that is almost certainly apocryphal about a F...

    The Nicomachean Ethics is one of the greatest works of Aristotle, the famous philosopher who was really much more of a scientist than a philosopher. This is the book where he indulges in the discussion of happiness, virtue, ethics, politics, and really anything else describing the way ...

    Aristotle doesn't satisfy your whole soul, just the logical side, but here he is quite thorough. The Nicomachean Ethics is his most important study of personal morality and the ends of human life. He does little more than search for and examine the "good." He examines the virtue and vi...

    This is a book worth rereading every few years. It is actually lecture notes by one of Aristotle?s students, as are most of the extant writings attributed to Aristotle. Not a work to be rushed through, the Ethics requires concentration and pondering, work that rewards the effort. ...

    "One lesson of our age is that barbarism persists under the surface, and that the virtues of civilized life are less deeply rooted than used to be supposed. The world is not too richly endowed with examples of perseverance and subtlety in analysis, of moderation and sanity in the study...

    Aristotle vs. Plato Having just finished and enjoyed Plato's complete works, I find this book a bit annoying and uninspiring in comparison. Aristotle seems to take every opportunity to "correct" Plato, when in fact he is only attacking a strawman. His arguments, sometimes self-contr...

    Happiness is the activity of a rational soul in accordance with virtue, writes Aristotle in the Nicomachean Ethics. Activity means living. Rational soul means a human being. And virtue means human excellence. So happiness means a human living excellently. How does one live excellen...

    It is rare that a philosophical book about ethics can be so investigation-based and have so much common sense in it. ...

    There's nothing I could possibly say about this book that hasn't already been said, and hasn't already been said better than I could articulate any point. The degree to which we have fallen from Aristotle's view of man is abominable. The need to which we ought to return to his view is ...

    Such an impressive book that it's honestly hard to do it justice. The philosophical distinctions that Aristotle introduces here -- the three types of friendship, hexis as the key to understanding moral action, the vice/virtue distinction, the spoudaios, etc. etc. -- are impressive enou...

    I dare say that if I ever come to read this again I would no doubt rate it higher than I have done here. Also if you are looking at this particular book then you already have an inkling as to it's purpose and what it is about. I'm no scholar, not by a long shot but found that a discipl...

    I actually read this previously within the larger context of an extended work, but I decided to revisit it because I felt that some of the ethical pondering in this work matched up with some life incidents that I was trying to review. I know that reviewing your life based on ancient li...

    Reading a book a week with a Goodreads group (the Ethica Nicomachea (EN) is divided into ten books), by the end I was exhausted, and took a long break before reading the Interpretive Essay, which, when I did sit down and read, I thought did an excellent job of pointing out some of Aris...

    This is an excellent edition if you really want to dig your teeth into Aristotle, Sarah Broadie's near line by line commentary is great. The translation is technical and might not appeal to you if the idea of an even drier Aristotle makes you wretch, but it at least makes things less a...

    The Nicomachean Ethics represents Aristotle?s search for how to live the virtuous life. The treatise doesn?t search for an abstract virtue in itself (like Plato), but rather for how to achieve virtue in practice. This is a necessarily inexact, almost pragmatic enterprise, and Ari...

    Aristotle's most polished book is still a diamond in the rough, and the student must still be the one to smooth the edges. It's not an easy task, but a worthy one, if only to admire the precision of his thinking. Aristotle is a scientist in style and personality, which raises a ser...

    Reading a book a week with a Goodreads group (the Ethica Nicomachea (EN) is divided into ten books), by the end I was exhausted, and took a long break before reading the Interpretive Essay, which, when I did sit down and read, I thought did an excellent job of pointing out some of Aris...

    This is an excellent edition if you really want to dig your teeth into Aristotle, Sarah Broadie's near line by line commentary is great. The translation is technical and might not appeal to you if the idea of an even drier Aristotle makes you wretch, but it at least makes things less a...

    The Nicomachean Ethics, Aristotle The Nicomachean Ethics (Ancient Greek: ????? ??????????) is the name normally given to Aristotle's best-known work on ethics. The work, which plays a pre-eminent role in defining Aristotelian ethics, consists of ten books, originally...

    Ancient Greek philosopher Aristotle postulates the highest human good is eudaimonia or what is loosely translated into English as happiness. And a substantial component in the path to such human happiness is acting with the appropriate virtues over the course of an entire lifetim...

    I?m a bit annoyed ? I wrote up my review to this last night and thought I?d posted it, but it seems to have gone to god?not happy about that (amusingly enough). This is my reconstruction of last night?s review. There is a story that is almost certainly apocryphal about a F...

    The Nicomachean Ethics is one of the greatest works of Aristotle, the famous philosopher who was really much more of a scientist than a philosopher. This is the book where he indulges in the discussion of happiness, virtue, ethics, politics, and really anything else describing the way ...

    Aristotle doesn't satisfy your whole soul, just the logical side, but here he is quite thorough. The Nicomachean Ethics is his most important study of personal morality and the ends of human life. He does little more than search for and examine the "good." He examines the virtue and vi...

    This is a book worth rereading every few years. It is actually lecture notes by one of Aristotle?s students, as are most of the extant writings attributed to Aristotle. Not a work to be rushed through, the Ethics requires concentration and pondering, work that rewards the effort. ...

    There's nothing I could possibly say about this book that hasn't already been said, and hasn't already been said better than I could articulate any point. The degree to which we have fallen from Aristotle's view of man is abominable. The need to which we ought to return to his view is ...

    Such an impressive book that it's honestly hard to do it justice. The philosophical distinctions that Aristotle introduces here -- the three types of friendship, hexis as the key to understanding moral action, the vice/virtue distinction, the spoudaios, etc. etc. -- are impressive enou...

    The Nicomachean Ethics represents Aristotle?s search for how to live the virtuous life. The treatise doesn?t search for an abstract virtue in itself (like Plato), but rather for how to achieve virtue in practice. This is a necessarily inexact, almost pragmatic enterprise, and Ari...

    Aristote resserre dans un seul ouvrage une critique fraiche des thses de Platon. Pas de grands effets rhtoriques, de mises en scne ingnieuse, d'habilet didactique, le discernement et la mthode prennent nettement le pas sur l'esprit. Les thmes abords sont moraux: le cons...

    The introduction goes through the word 'ethics' and how Aristotle meant something different - more about character. Also by happiness he meant something different. There exists an indeterminancy of translation: you can never have a perfect translation - but translations are to be...

    Aristotle's most polished book is still a diamond in the rough, and the student must still be the one to smooth the edges. It's not an easy task, but a worthy one, if only to admire the precision of his thinking. Aristotle is a scientist in style and personality, which raises a ser...
