The previous chapters have been largely silent on the philosophical merits of Aristotle's arguments, in the belief that analysis should precede criticism. This concluding chapter discusses how, possessed now of a unified account of the foundations of the Ethics, we ought to assess them and the work that Aristotle has built on them. Has the Ethics anything to teach us? And if so, what are its most important lessons?

Keywords: Aristotle; Nichomachean Ethics; eudaimonia; phronēsis; nous
