Nicomachean Ethics – Aristotle
One of the most important philosophical works of all time, in a new Penguin Classics translation by Adam Beresford
‚Right and wrong is a human thing’
What does it mean to be a good person? Aristotle’s famous series of lectures on ethical topics ranges over fundamental questions about good and bad character; pleasure and self-control; moral wisdom and the foundations of right and wrong; friendship and love in all their forms – all set against a rich and humane conception of what makes for a flourishing life. Adam Beresford’s freshly researched translation presents many of Aristotle’s key terms and idioms in standard English for the first time, and faithfully preserves the unvarnished style of the original.
