If we are right so far, Books VII and X of the Nicomachean Ethics show no disagreement on the nature of pleasure, but considerable difference of context. This chapter concentrates on Book X. First, armed with the interpretation offered of the account of pleasure contained in it Aristotle's position in relation to Eudoxus and Plato is examined. The place of this view in the Nicomachean Ethics as a whole is then considered.
