CONTENTS
Nicomachean Ethics is considered the first treatise on ethics as a specific philosophical topic. In ancient Greek: Ἠθικὰ Νικομάχεια, Ēthikà Nikomácheia; in Latin: Ethica Nichomachea. It is a collection based on the lectures given by Aristotle. The adjective “Nicomachea” probably indicates a dedication by Aristotle to his son Nicomachus, but it is not excluded that it was a name assigned by the son himself when he spread the work posthumously.
"il virtuoso sopporta con serenità tutte le vicissitudini e trae spunto dalle circostanze per compiere sempre le cose moralmente più belle [...]".
Bilingual: 2 important philosophical works by Aristotle, bound in one volume, on two columns with parallel Greek text.
