Nicomachean Ethics of Aristotle



A translation of a work so well known as Aristotle's Ethics scarcely needs any preface. It might perhaps seem superfluous to do again what has already been done so often, but everyone who is acquainted with the extant English translations knows that valuable as they are, they leave much to be desired. I am quite conscious that the version which is now offered to the public is still very far from being adequate, yet I venture to hope that it may do something towards supplying an acknowledged want and that it may be of some service to those who (whether they be scholars or not) wish to know what the greatest thinker of antiquity has to say upon a subject which is of such a nature that what a great man of any age says upon it is usually of more permanent value than what he says on any other subject.

Aristotle (c. 384 B.C. to 322 B.C.) was an Ancient Greek philosopher and scientist who is still considered one of the greatest thinkers in politics, psychology, and ethics. ... In 335, Aristotle founded his own school, the Lyceum, in Athens, where he spent most of the rest of his life studying, teaching and writing.
