Nicomachean ethics by Aristotle( Book )

325 editions published between 1469 and 2020 in 11 languages and held by 9,449 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this translation of the Nicomachean Ethics, readers are free to thread their own way through Aristotle's arguments without adventitious signposts such as section-headings, frequent paragraphing, and numbering of points. For those who want additional guidance, or who desire to check their own interpretation against that of another, a line-by-line commentary is provided, attending more to how Aristotle's thinking works at each step than to criticism or to wider implications. To complement the close work of translation and commentary, the volume includes a long Philosophical Introduction which expounds and brings together the larger themes. An Historical Introduction rounds out the array of resources offered in this presentation of the Nicomachean Ethics. The whole makes the greatest of ethical treatises approachable by every sort of reader, without sacrifice of simplicity or of subtlety."--Jacket

"This new translation of one of the fundamental texts of Western political thought combines strict fidelity to Aristotle's Greek with a contemporary English prose style. Lord's intention throughout is to retain Aristotle's distinctive style. The accompanying notes provide literary and historical references, call attention to textual problems, and supply other essential information and interpretation. A glossary supplies working definitions of key terms in Aristotle's philosophical-political vocabulary as well as a guide to linguistic relationships that are not always reflected in equivalent English terms. Lord's extensive introduction presents a detailed account of Aristotle's life in relation to the political situation and events of his time and then discusses the problematic character and history of Aristotle's writings in general and of the Politics in particular. Lord also outlines Aristotle's conception of political science, tracing its relation to theoretical science on the one hand and to ethics on the other. In conclusion, he briefly traces the subsequent history and influence of the Politics up to modern times."--Publisher's description

This Introduction to Aristotle is a presentation in which Aristotle is permitted to speak for himself in the context of a sketched scheme of the relation of what he says in one treatise to what he says elsewhere. The seven introductions which precede these seven works place them in their contexts by describing their relations to other works or parts of works, their place in the scheme of the Aristotelian sciences, and the fashion in which the subjects treated in the sciences they expound may be considered in the approaches proper to other sciences in the system. - Preface

"That the male and the female are the principles of generation has been previously stated, as also what is their power and their essence.

In History of Animals Aristotle analyzes "differences"--In parts, activities, modes of life, and character -- across the animal kingdom, in preparation for establishing their causes, which are the concern of his other zoological works. Over 500 species of animals are considered: shellfish, insects, birds, fish, reptiles, amphibians, and mammals -- including human beings. In books I-IV Aristotle gives a comparative survey of internal and external body parts, including tissues and fluids and of sense faculties and voice. Books V-VI study reproductive methods, breeding habits, and embryogenesis as well as some secondary sex differences. In Books VII-IX, Aristotle examines differences among animals in feeding; in habitat, hibernation, migration; in enmities and sociability; in disposition (including differences related to gender) and intelligence. Here too he describes the human reproductive system, conception, pregnancy, and obstetrics. Book X establishes the female's contribution to generation

14 editions published between 1996 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aristotle's works have influenced science, religion, and philosophy for nearly two thousand years. He could be thought of as the father of logical thought. Aristotle wrote: "There is nothing in the intellect that was not first in the senses." He wrote that everything that is learned in life is learned through sensory perception. Aristotle was the first to establish the founding principle of logic. The great writer Dante called Aristotle "The Master of those who know." The Roman writer Cicero viewed Aristotle's work so highly that he called them "A river of gold". "Again does it follow that being, if one, is motionless? Why should it not move, the whole of it within itself as parts of it do which are unities e.g. this water
