Aristotle on the Sources of the Ethical Life

Oxford: Oxford University Press (2019)
  Copy   BIBTEX


Sylvia Berryman offers a fresh understanding of Aristotle's ethical theory, challenging the common belief that he aimed to give it a biological foundation in human nature. Berryman reinterprets Aristotle's views as a 'middle way' between the metaphysical grounding offered by Platonists and sceptical or subjectivist alternatives.
