Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics, said to be dedicated to Aristotle's son Nicomachus, is widely regarded as one of the most important works in the history of Western philosophy. Addressing the question of how men should best live, Aristotle's treatise is not a mere philosophical meditation on the subject, but a practical examination that aims to provide a guide for living out its recommendations. The result is a deep inquiry into the nature and means of attaining happiness, which Aristotle defines as consisting not merely of pleasure or an emotional state, but of a virtuous and morally led life. This edition is the translation by W. D. Ross. Download and start listening now!

    " A veritable manual for happiness. "

    " An excellent, albeit dry, primer on how the rational man/woman derives his/her virtue. I love this book! I can hardly recommend it though, for its difficulty level. Aristotle does not have the charisma or communication skills of his predecessor Plato. That makes Aristotle something of an acquired taste. But if one can get past the superficial obstacles, Aristotle and his lessons on virtue will wow you beyond expectation. "

    " You know, ethics. The usual. "

    " This book is probably worth much more stars. Gave it two for the difficulty that this book is. One of the core books of philosophy and an exceptional read. It is astounding how what Aristotle wrote years ago still stands as the basis of European philosophy "
