This introductory chapter, which begins by presenting some of the author's thoughts about Aristotle's Ethics, outlines certain aspects of the Ethics that he finds literally unthinkable, and even repellent. It then sets out the book's main purpose, namely to analyze the radical thesis that lies at the center of the Ethics—that being good and doing good coincide. An overview of the subsequent chapters is also presented.
