Essays on Plato and Aristotle by J. L Ackrill( )

36 editions published between 1997 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

J.L. Ackrill's work on Plato and Aristotle has had a considerable influence upon ancient philosophical studies in the late twentieth century. In his writings the rigour and clarity of contemporary analytic philosophy are brought to bear upon ancient thought; in many cases he has provided the first analytic treatment of a key issue. Gathered now in this volume are the best of Ackrill's essays on the two greatest philosophers of antiquity. Here he examines a wide range of texts and topics - from ethics and logic to epistemology and metaphysics - which continue to be the focus of debate today

The ethics of Aristotle : the Nicomachean ethics by Aristotle( )

8 editions published between 1925 and 1998 in English and held by 1,738 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A vigorous polemicist as well as a rational philosopher, Aristotle (384 - 322 BCE) has the task in his ethics of demonstrating how men become good and why happiness can, and should, be our goal. The success of Aristotle's endeavour may be measured by the enormous impact of his ethics on Western moral philosophy through the centuries. Composed as mere lecture notes, it possesses a startling boldness and represents an exacting, exciting challenge to the reader. By converting ethics from a theoretical to a practical science, and by introducing psychology into his study of behaviour, Aristotle both widens the field of moral philosophy and simultaneously makes it more accessible to anyone who seeks an understanding of human nature.-Amazon.com

Nicomachean ethics by Aristotle( Book )

8 editions published between 1980 and 1998 in English and held by 16 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
