Nikomachische Ethik by Aristotle( Book )

64 editions published between 1951 and 2011 in German and Undetermined and held by 391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die "Nikomachische Ethik" ist die bedeutendste ethische Schrift des Aristoteles (384-322 v. Chr.). Sie gibt einen Leitfaden an die Hand, wie man ein guter Mensch wird und ein glückliches Leben führt. Im Mittelpunkt der ebenso nüchternen wie umsichtigen Analyse stehen die Begriffe Glück, Tugend, Entscheidung, Klugheit, Unbeherrschtheit, Lust und Freundschaft. Es gilt, die Extreme des Zuviel oder Zuwenig zu vermeiden und jene "Mitte" zu finden, die allein Tugend und individuelles Glück ermöglicht. Die aristotelischen Ausführungen sind keineswegs nur von historischem Interesse, sondern üben auch auf die ethische Debatte der Gegenwart entscheidenden Einfluss aus. Wer auch immer sich für eine Theorie moralischer bzw. humaner Praxis interessiert, findet in der "Nikomachischen Ethik" eines der wenigen bis heute einschlägigen Grundmodelle.

The politics by Aristotle( Book )

47 editions published between 1970 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This new translation of one of the fundamental texts of Western political thought combines strict fidelity to Aristotle's Greek with a contemporary English prose style. Lord's intention throughout is to retain Aristotle's distinctive style. The accompanying notes provide literary and historical references, call attention to textual problems, and supply other essential information and interpretation. A glossary supplies working definitions of key terms in Aristotle's philosophical-political vocabulary as well as a guide to linguistic relationships that are not always reflected in equivalent English terms. Lord's extensive introduction presents a detailed account of Aristotle's life in relation to the political situation and events of his time and then discusses the problematic character and history of Aristotle's writings in general and of the Politics in particular. Lord also outlines Aristotle's conception of political science, tracing its relation to theoretical science on the one hand and to ethics on the other. In conclusion, he briefly traces the subsequent history and influence of the Politics up to modern times."--Publisher's description
