"Aristotle's Nichomachaean Ethics is one of the most important and central texts in the history of Western philosophy. It lies at the heart of contemporary moral theory and is essential to understanding the history of ethics." "Gerard J. Hughes provides students with a guide to Aristotle's Nichomachaean Ethics. He explains the key elements in Aristotle's terminology and highlights the controversy regarding the interpretations of his writings. The GuideBook explores each section of the text, and presents a detailed account of the problems Aristotle was trying to address, such as happiness, responsibility, moral education and friendship. It also examines the role that Aristotle's Ethics continues to play in contemporary moral philosophy by comparing and contrasting his views with those widely held today." "Aristotle on Ethics is for all students coming to Aristotle for the first time and will provide a starting point for anyone interested in ethical thought."--Jacket
