” I’m very glad I own this book.”–Benjamin Morison in Phronesis, 2012.
“By far the best introductory work devoted to the Ethics available today.” –Thornton Lockwood, Ancient Philosophy
“Because Pakaluk has fresh and interesting things to say about the entire range of topics treated in the Ethics, it is a book that even those who have already carefully studied this treatise will profit from reading.” –Richard Kraut, Bryn Mawr Classical Review
“Continues the fine tradition of the Clarendon Aristotle series by offering an impeccable translation of Books VIII and IX and providing some much needed commentary in English on a neglected aspect of Aristotle’s ethical theory.” –Joseph Almeida, Bryn Mawr Classical Review
“Friendship, that pervasive, everyday, and subtle matter of our most intimate personal life, has rarely been accorded its due. Michael Pakaluk has retrieved the thoughts of our greatest thinkers on the subject and collected them into a handsome and handy volume. . . . A splendid book!”–Max Wartofsky, Distinguished Professor of Philosophy, Baruch College, City University of New York
