Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics is one of the most important and central texts in the history of western philosophy. It continues to be at the heart of contemporary moral theory and essential to understanding the development of ethical thought in the West. Gerard Hughes provides students with a stimulating, clear and accessible guide to Aristotle's ethics. He explains the key elements in Aristotle's terminology and highlights the controversy regarding the interpretations of his writings. The guidebook carefully explores each section of the text, and presents a detailed account of the problems Aristotle was trying to address. 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 essential reading for all students coming to Aristotle for the first time and will provide an ideal starting point for anyone interested in ethical thought.
