Politics by Aristotle
Are you sure you want to Yes No. Aristotle March 29, Lord has made revisions to problematic passages throughout the translation in order to enhance both its accuracy and its readability. Further enhancing this new edition is an up-to-date selected bibliography. More by Aristotle See more. The Nicomachean Ethics. One of the most important philosophical works of all time, in a new Penguin Classics translation. Aristotle's classic treatise is based on his famous doctrine of the golden mean, which advocates taking the middle course between excess and deficiency.
Reacting against Plato's absolutism, Aristotle insisted that there are no definitive moral standards, and that ethical philosophy must be based on human nature and experience. Treating such topics as moral worth, intellectual virtue, pleasure, friendship, and happiness, Aristotle's work asks above all: what is the good life and how can we live it?
His answer is happiness, but he means, not something we feel, but rather a specially good kind of life. Happiness is made up of activities in which we use the best human capacities, both ones that contribute to our flourishing as members of a community, and ones that allow us to engage in god-like contemplation. Contemporary ethical writings on the role and importance of the moral virtues such as courage and justice have drawn inspiration from this work, which also contains important discussions on responsibility for actions, on the nature of practical reasoning, and on friendship and its role in the best life.
