Aristotle: The Contrast of Treatments

Show Summary Details


If we turn to the question of developments immediately after Plato, our main source is Aristotle, and if we are to use Aristotle as a source of information about the way discussion developed we have to reach some conclusions on the relationships between the treatments of pleasure in Books VII and X of the Nicomachean Ethics. This chapter focuses on what might be called their philosophical relationship.

Keywords: Aristotle; pleasure; Nicomachean Ethics; philosophical relationship
