Note "This book examines Aristotle's method in ethics. Let me be clear that I do not think that Aristotle has an ethical "method" in the sense of a mechanical decision procedure for seeking ethical knowledge which eliminates the need for creative insight and judgment. In fact, his reliance upon judgment in his ethical inquiries, and philosophical inquiries more generally, is a major theme of this book"-- Provided by publisher
