'Happiness, then, is the best, noblest, and most pleasant thing in the world.' In the Nicomachean Ethics Aristotle's guiding question is: what is the best thing for a human being? His answer is happiness, but he means, not something we feel, but rather a specially good kind of life. Happiness is made up of activities in which we use the best human capacities, both ones that contribute to our flourishing as members of a community, and ones that allow us to engage in god-like contemplation. Contemporary ethical writings on the role and importance of the moral virtues such as courage and justice have drawn inspiration from this work, which also contains important discussions on responsibility for actions, on the nature of practical reasoning, and on friendship and its role in the best life. This new edition retains and lightly revises David Ross's justly admired translation. It also includes a valuable introduction to this seminal work, and notes designed to elucidate Aristotle's arguments. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe.

Not illustrated. 1892 edition. Excerpt: ... is voit, resulting in the function of vo'70-ir or Btapla, often characterised as 'divine.' But the same organising principle, which appears in man as voit, appears in the irrational animals (and in plants) as a nisus impelling them to purify the specific form, or ?8or, from the incidents of individual decay and death, and make it eternal in the race (see de An. ii. 4. 415 a. 29). While individual animals seem to live Koto wdBos, for themselves, and to satisfy merely their own immediate wants, there is all the while at work within them 'an eternal principle not themselves' (6u6v ), by which their behaviour is regulated in conformity with a plan which includes all Nature: romin-ijs dpxnt jjprrfrai 6 uvpayis nai j/ tpvait (Mel. A. 7. 1072 b. 13). The Aristotelian God is the abstract of all the various modes of the organising nisus in Nature.

Excerpt from Notes on the Nicomachean Ethics of Aristotle, Vol. 1 Having, for these reasons, dispensed with 'introductory Essays, ' I have been obliged to make a good many of the notes somewhat long; and being anxious that every important passage, as it occurred, should there and then impress the student with its full weight - its weight being often the weight of Aristotle's whole Philosophy brought to bear through some technical term - I have not been very careful to avoid repetitions. The quotations from other works of Aristotle, and from Plato, have been printed in full, in order that the junior student may be able to read conveniently, within the limits of these volumes, what he certainly must read, if he is to understand the Ethics in a concrete way as part of Aristotle's entire Philosophy.
