"This is a polyphonic discussion of issues which is sophisticated and scholarly without being esoteric and technical. It enhances one's understanding of Aristotle's ethics and also sharpens one's awareness of the challenging problems of interpretation and ensuing controversies. There is a revival of the ethics of character whose representative par excellence is Aristotle. " — Dr. Constantine Georgiadis, McMaster University
"Each of the eassays in the Anton and Preus volume offers something of value for our understanding of Aristotle's ethics, be it a vigorous analysis of an argument, a fresh interpretation of a passage in Aristotle's perennially compelling Nicomachean Ethics, or an apercu about Aristotle's contribution to the modern debate over virtue and the good life.
