Further reading

Further reading Aristotle's Greek is compressed, and his meaning frequently indeterminate. For this reason, a reader of Aristotle in translation is well advised to consult more than one translation, especially of important passages. Perhaps the most useful is that of T. H. Irwin (Indianapolis: Hackett, 1985), which contains analyses of the argument, as well as notes and a substantial glossary. An elegant translation is provided by Harris Rackham (Ware: Wordsworth, 1996). The `World's Classics' translation by W. D. Ross, revised by J. L. Ackrill and J. O. Urmson (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1980), and that by M. Ostwald (Indianapolis: Bobbs-Merrill, 1962), are also deservedly popular. The revised Oxford translation of the Complete Works of Aristotle is available in two volumes edited by Jonathan Barnes (Princeton, NJ: Princeton University Press, 1984). Other works by Aristotle particularly relevant to the reader of the Nicomachean Ethics are On the Soul, Eudemian Ethics, Politics, and Rhetoric. An overview is provided in W. D. Ross, Aristotle (London: Methuen, 1923). There are several good commentaries on the Ethics. The best is R. Gauthier and J. Jolif, Aristote: l'Ethique aÁ Nicomaque (Louvain: Publications Universitaires de Louvain, 2nd edn, 4 vols., 1970). Also useful are A. Grant, The Ethics of Aristotle (London: Longmans, Green, and Co., 1885), J. Stewart, Notes on the Nicomachean Ethics of Aristotle (Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1982), J. Burnet, The Ethics of Aristotle (London: Methuen, 1900), and H. Joachim, The Nicomachean Ethics (Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1951). All of these commentaries contain xxxviii

Further reading material of use to readers without Greek, though, of course, the Gauthier-Jolif requires French. For an introductory essay on Aristotle, see T. H. Irwin, `Aristotle', in E. Craig (ed.), Routledge Encyclopedia of Philosophy (London: Routledge, 1998). This includes an annotated bibliography. An outstanding and brief introduction to Aristotle is Jonathan Barnes, Aristotle (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1982). J. L. Ackrill, Aristotle the Philosopher (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1981) is clear, and contains helpful quotations from Aristotle. Longer volumes useful to someone with some philosophical expertise are J. Lear, Aristotle: The Desire to Understand (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1988) and T. H. Irwin, Aristotle's First Principles (Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1988). Jonathan Barnes (ed.), The Cambridge Companion to Aristotle (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1995) contains essays on central areas of Aristotle's thought, including a chapter on his ethics by D. S. Hutchinson, as well as a full bibliography. A brief introduction to Aristotle's ethics is J. Urmson, Aristotle's Ethics (Oxford: Blackwell, 1988). A fuller handbook is W. Hardie, Aristotle's Ethical Theory (Oxford: Clarendon Press, 2nd edn, 1980). S. Broadie, Ethics with Aristotle (New York: Oxford University Press, 1991) is a suggestive discussion of various central topics in the Ethics, including happiness and the virtues. Several important essays are collected in A. Rorty (ed.), Essays on Aristotle's Ethics (Berkeley, CA: University of California Press, 1980). See also J. Barnes, M. Scho®eld, and R. Sorabji (eds.), Articles on Aristotle, vol. 2 (London: Duckworth, 1977); and J. Anton and A. Preus (eds.), Aristotle's Ethics: Essays in Ancient Greek Philosophy, vol. 4 (Albany: State University of New York Press, 1991). Other helpful books include Julia Annas, The Morality of Happiness (New York: Oxford University Press, 1993) (on ancient views of happiness, including that of Aristotle); David Charles, Aristotle's Philosophy of Action (London: Duckworth, 1984); John Cooper, Reason and Human Good in Aristotle (Cambridge, Mass.: Harvard University Press, 1975); Norman Dahl, Practical Reason, Aristotle, and Weakness of Will (Minneapolis: University of Minnesota Press, 1984); Troels Engberg- Pedersen, Aristotle's Theory of Moral Insight (Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1983); J. Gosling and C. Taylor, The Greeks on Pleasure (Oxford: xxxix
