This chapter discusses a study that looks separately at the phronesis-theory of each of the three treatises. It also compares the phronēsis-theory of the Aristotelian Ethics with that of the Nicomachean Ethics and the Eudemian Ethics. The contrasts that can be drawn between the theory of the latter two are studied in this chapter as well.
