This chapter discusses two of the three Aristotelian Ethics, which are the Eudemian Ethics and the Nicomachean Ethics. The Nicomachean Ethics have been considered as the ethics of Aristotle for many centuries, while the Eudemian Ethics were once regarded as false by scholars in the 19th century. Several ancient writers and their respective quotations and commentaries of the Ethics of Aristotle are discussed in detail in the final sections of this chapter.
