Description

An excellent new translation and commentary. It will serve newcomers as an informative, accessible introduction to the Nicomachean Ethics and to many issues in Aristotle's philosophy, but also has much to offer advanced scholars. The commentary is noteworthy for its frequent citations of relevant passages from other works in Aristotle's corpus, which often shed new light on the texts. Reeve's translation is meticulous: it hits the virtuous mean--accurate and technical, yet readable--between translation's vicious extremes of faithlessness and indigestibility.--Jessica Moss, New York University

Review quote

The Nicomachean Ethics remains the most compelling of all works on the good human life, and readers can now enjoy ready access to it through David Reeve's fluent new translation. Accompanied by illuminating commentary and an exceptionally rich index, the volume is an ideal companion for those aspiring to learn their way around this classic text. David Sedley, The University of Cambridge C. D. C. Reeve's masterful new translation of Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics will become a classic: it is clear and readable; its interpretive implications are far-reaching; it is philosophically illuminating. Reeve's scholarly noteswith detailed textual cross-references to the rest of Aristotle's worksintegrate the ethics with the metaphysics, the politics, and the philosophy of mind. The book is an invaluable resource, useful to students and scholars alike. Amelie Rorty, Tufts University and Harvard Medical School An excellent new translation and commentary.
