The questions Amazon asks aren’t really applicable to the book, but this is a great book on ethics. I originally picked it up for a philosophy class and have since sent copies to three friends. It’s like a handbook for living.
It’s a philosophical book, so don’t expect to blow through it. Some people may argue Aristotle is circular in his definition of ethics what not, but I did not find this to be true.
Instead, his writing is very clear and simple to read. It’s just that, at times, it can be quite dense. Thankfully, Terence Irwin wrote lots of notes to help readers understand what Aristotle may have meant based on his Irwin’s perspectives. Overall, this was a fantastic read. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. Excellent book, the translation is good, the notes are very revealing. Maybe some other books would offer more commentary to understand the topic, the ideas, and how to apply it or compare it in modern times.
In this book the comments seem more onto making the text clearer, along with the ideas of the author in relation to the context of the book.
Still, I like a lot this book, also its size, is almost a pocket edition, very handy. One person found this helpful. As a philosophy undergrad I can never have enough books, especially Aristotle works. This book has been through the ringer this semester and has become my bible!
Nice to search for your terms and theories electronically! It means you can’t resell the book but saves so much time when doing research and reading it is definitely worth it! If ethica I by all electronic books now! The book is necessary nicomachsan most ethics classes and have a wealth of knowledge and things to think about, I haven’t taken a recent ethics class but still reference it here and there personally when doing research and thinking about things!
I bought both hard copy and electronic. I sold the hard copy but wouldn’t have if not for the electronic copy! I’m reviewing Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics! First, I read this first at college 25 years ago. Re-reading it provided me an amazing a-ha!!! So much more made sense to me! It’s one of those texts that is worth re-reading a couple of times in one’s life, for as we mature, we are privy to new insights offered by this great person.
First, this translation contained at least a half dozen translation errors. Osfwald I found to be errors off the cuff makes me wonder what other errors might have been made in ostawld translation and editing process.
The errors that I found were minor and would not have altered my decision to purchase this masterpiece. Second, while brilliant and while he discusses the values and virtues and deficits and aspirations and social processes, this piece does not focus upon the applied ethics that I most enjoy.
I give this a solid “A” and highly recommend it for anyone aristotlf wishes to study human nature and ethical conflicts. Overall, the translation is probably easier to read than an older translation, most likely because of maryin difference between today’s and yesterday’s more eloquent English. This book is a rip off.
It doesn’t even have chapter X, the last section of the book. Stay clear of this edition. The Nicomachean Ethics of Aristotle. In some places he fills in sentences to make the meaning clear. Also, in the Kindle edition it is easy to jump to footnotes for more information. He and his community were living virtuous, fulfilling lives thousands of years ago, and I find his insights aristotlw today.
