"This texts' arguments are summarized, analysed, and assessed succinctly. Each chapter ends with suggestions for further reading on the themes and ideas discussed within the chapter, and the book concludes with an evaluation of the Ethics as a whole. Bostock provides the ideal companion to study of this great work, helping the reader to engage with its ideas and arguments as living philosophy."--BOOK JACKET."
