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

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, What is the relationship of the individual to the state What is the ideal state and how can it bring about the most desirable life for its citizens What sort of education should it provide What is the purpose of amassing wealth These are some of the questions Aristotle attempts to answer in one of the most intellectually stimulating works br Both heavily influenced by and critical of Plato s i Republic and Laws i i Politics i represents the distillation of a lifetime of thought and observation Encyclopaedic knowledge has never before or since gone hand in hand with a logic so masculine or with speculation so profound says H W C Davis in his introduction Students teachers and scholars will welcome this inexpensive new edition of the Benjamin Jowett translation as will all readers interested in Greek thought political theory and depictions of the ideal state, i The plot is the source and the soul of tragedy i br br In his near contemporary account of Greek tragedy Aristotle examines the dramatic elements of plot character language and spectacle that combine to produce pity and fear in the audience and asks why we derive pleasure from this apparently painful process Taking examples from the plays of Aeschylus Sophocles and Euripides The Poetics introduces into literary criticism such central concepts as i mimesis i imitation i hamartia i error and i katharsis i purification Aristotle explains how the most effective tragedies rely on complication and resolution recognition and reversals centring on characters of heroic stature idealized yet true to life One of the most powerful perceptive and influential works of criticism in Western literary history the i Poetics i has informed serious thinking about drama ever since br br Malcolm Heath s lucid English translation makes the i Poetics i fully accessible to the modern reader It is accompanied by an extended introduction which discusses the key concepts in detail and includes suggestions for further reading, For many centuries Aristotle s Physics was the essential starting point for anyone who wished to study the natural sciences Now in the first translation into English since Aristotle s thought is presented accurately with a lucid introduction and extensive notes to explain the general structure of each section of the book and shed light on particular problems It simplifies and expands the style of the original making for easier reading and better comprehension
