The Nicomachean Ethics is Aristotle's best-known work on this subject. It consists of ten books and is based on notes from his lectures at the Lyceum. The theme of the work is the Socratic question of how men should best live. Before Socrates, philosophy was merely theoretical. This changed dramatically with Aristotle’s works, which bind philosophy to human issues. The Nicomachean Ethics are therefore practical rather than theoretical, in the original Aristotelian senses of these terms.

Essays on the nature of Aspasius' commentary, his interpretation of Aristotle, and his place in the history of thought. An aid in interpreting the Ethics, and a history of commentary as a genre and a history of philosophical thought.
This work presents the Nicomachean Ethics in a fresh English translation by Christopher Rowe that strives to be meticulously accurate yet also accessible. The translation is accompanied by Sarah Broadie's detailed line-by-line commentary, which brings out the subtlety of Aristotle's thought asit develops from moment to moment. In addition, a substantial introductory section features a thorough examination of the text's main themes and interpretative problems and also provides preambles to each of the ten books of the Nicomachean Ethics. An indispensable resource for students approachingthe Nicomachean Ethics for the first time, this detailed treatment is ideal for courses in classical or ancient philosophy, the philosophy of Aristotle, and ethics.
