Read online Éthique À Nicomaque.pdf PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC Éthique À Nicomaque The Nicomachean Ethics is a name normally given to Aristotle s best known work on ethics The English version of the title derives from Greek transliterated Ethika Nikomacheia which is sometimes also given in the genitive form as Ethik n Nikomachei n The Latin translations are thica Nicomach a or De Moribus ad Nicomachum The work which plays a preeminent role in defining Aristotelian ethics consists of books originally separate scrolls amp is understood to be based on notes from his lectures at the Lyceum which were either edited by or dedicated to his son Nicomachus The theme of the work is the Socratic question which had previously been explored by Plato of how to best live Aristotle s Metaphysics described how Socrates turned philosophy to human questions whereas PreSocratic philosophy had only been theoretical Ethics now separated out for discussion is practical rather than theoretical in the Aristotelian senses of these terms It isn t only a contemplation about good living but also aims to create good living It s therefore connected to Aristotle s other practical work Politics which similarly aims at people becoming good However ethics is about how individuals should live while the study of politics is from the perspective of a law giver looking at the good of a whole community by Aristotle, Roger-Pol Droit

i One swallow does not make a summer neither does one day Similarly neither can one day or a brief space of time make a man blessed and happy i br br In the i Nicomachean Ethics i Aristotle sets out to examine the nature of happiness He argues that happiness consists in activity of the soul in accordance with virtue for example with moral virtues such as courage generosity and justice and intellectual virtues such as knowledge wisdom and insight i The Ethics i also discusses the nature of practical reasoning the value and the objects of pleasure the different forms of friendship and the relationship between individual virtue society and the State Aristotle s work has had a profound and lasting influence on all subsequent Western thought about ethical matters br br J A K Thomson s translation has been revised by Hugh Tredennick and is accompanied by a new introduction by Jonathan Barnes This edition also includes an updated list for further reading and a new chronology of Aristotle s life and works br br Previously published as i Ethics i, Complete texts br i Physics i tr R P Hardie amp R K Gaye br i On Generation amp Corruption i tr Harold H Joachim br i On the Soul i tr J A Smith br i Metaphysics i tr W D Ross br i Nichomachean Ethics i tr W D Ross br i Politics i tr Benjamin Jowett br i Poetics i tr Ingram Bywater br Texts partly reproduced br i Organon i logical treatises i Categories i i On Interpretation i i Prior i amp i Posterior Analytics i i Topics i amp i On Sophistical Refutations i br i On the Heavens i br i The Short Physical Treatises i natural treatises i On Memory i i On Dreams i amp i On Prophesying by Dreams i br i The History of Animals i br i On The Parts of Animals i br i On The Generation of Animals i br i Rhetoric i br Generally accepted texts omitted entirely br i Meteorology i br i On the Progression of Animals i br i Constitution of Athens i br i Eudemian Ethics i, Few if any writers in history have made major contributions to as many fields of knowledge as Aristotle br p If there are two definitive features of ancient Greek civilization writes Hugh Lawson Tancred in his wide ranging Introduction they are articulacy and competition In the city states oratorical competence was an essential asset for politicians in the Assemblies and Councils and even for ordinary citizens in the courts of law In response the technique of rhetoric rapidly developed bringing virtuoso performances and a host of practical manuals for the layman Yet if many of these were little more than collections of debaters tricks the hugely influential i Art of Rhetoric i has a far deeper purpose It is here that Aristotle B C establishes the methods of informal reasoning provides the first aesthetic evaluation of prose style and offers detailed observations on character and the emotions Persuasiveness suggests Lawson Tancred becomes for the first time a systematic and even scientific exercise it can indeed be taught but only by a deep grasp of some of the most central features of human nature His fine translation makes freshly available an epoch making work of literary criticism p, Metaphysics Greek is one of the principal works of Aristotle amp the first major work of the branch of philosophy with the same name The principal subject is being qua being or being understood as being It examines what can be asserted about anything that exists just because of its existence amp not because of any special qualities it has Also covered are different kinds of causation form amp matter the existence of mathematical objects amp a prime mover God
