Publisher's Summary

Aristotle is widely considered to be one of the foremost figures in Western thought. As a student of Plato, he developed a wide range of interests, including politics, morality, and ethics.

In Nicomachean Ethics, Aristotle delves into the question of what is best for mankind and humans as individuals. His conclusion is that happiness is the best possible human condition, though he is not referencing the emotion of happiness. Instead, Aristotle concludes that true happiness comes as a way of life in which the individual contributes to the good of his community, as well as his mind.

Nicomachean Ethics also discusses subjects such as the importance of moral virtue, responsibility, and friendships on one's journey to creating a happy life. Throughout history, there have been a number of authors inspired by Aristotle's works. Today, authors of moral works still frequently reference his writings.

    "Great Read!"

    First, hats off to the narrator on doing a wonderful job with this narration. It was read and paced very well. The book, Nicomachean Ethics is one of Aristotle’s most important works of philosophy. It provides a window into the past and how philosophical thinkers like Aristotle viewed politics, virtue, and ethics in ancient Greece.

    My biggest takeaway from this book was his view on government and how there are really only three forms of government and how all forms of government carry unique risks of becoming corrupt. It was Aristotle’s view that the best form of government was the monarchy or the rule of one, but he also believed that form of government could lead to tyranny, the worst form of government.

    Anyone with an interest in political and ethical theory should enjoy reading this book!

    "might take a few listens"

    It was hard to follow the narrator. Maybe due to my slower speed interpreting the old vernacular. It could have been slowed down a bit, in my option.
