Aristotle's Ethical Theory

W.F.R. Hardie


This is a study of Aristotle's moral philosophy as it is contained in the Nicomachean Ethics. The book examines the difficulties of the text; presents a map of inescapable philosophical questions; and brings out the ambiguities and critical disagreements on some central topics, including happiness, the soul, the ethical mean, and the initiation of action.

Keywords: Aristotle, moral philosophy, Nicomachean Ethics, philosophical questions, happiness, soul, ethical man, initiation of action
