In this incisive study Sarah Broadie gives an argued account of the main topics of Aristotle's ethics: eudaimonia, virtue, voluntary agency, practical reason, akrasia, pleasure, and the ethical status of theoria. She explores the sense of "eudaimonia," probes Aristotle's division of the soul and its virtues, and traces the ambiguities in "voluntary." Fresh light is shed on his comparison of practical wisdom with other kinds of knowledge, and a realistic account is developed of Aristototelian deliberation. The concept of pleasure as value-judgment is expounded, and the problem of akrasia is argued to be less of a problem to Aristotle than to his modern interpreters. Showing that the theoretic ideal of Nicomachean Ethics X is in step with the earlier emphasis on practice, as well as with the doctrine of the Eudemian Ethics, this work makes a major contribution towards the understanding of Aristotle's ethics.

Review:


"An ideal balance: philosophical substance and scholarly apparatus for advanced undergraduates; comprehensive plan (and Aristotle!) for introductory level study."--Don Asselin, Hillsdale College


"Broadie has a knack for engaging the reader in Aristotle's problematic. Her style is lucid and intelligent. A valuable book for students or scholars in the field."--Leonard W. Ortmann, Conception Seminary College


"A splendid in-depth treatment....Because of the book's wide scope, and the philosophical depth and originality of its author, Ethics with Aristotle deserves to be recognized as one of the best and most important works on Aristotle's moral philosophy written in recent decades."--Ethics


"This is a book from which anyone can learn a great deal about ethics and about Aristotle....It is clearly one of the two best books on Aristotle's ethics to appear in recent years."--New England Classical Newsletter & Journal


"Magisterial....A powerful set of insights about how to read Aristotle's ethics and many suggestive ideas about how to do ethics with Aristotle."--Mind
