The Nicomachean Ethics Summary. Fasten your seatbelts. Make sure the shoulder harness clicks into place. Get your crash helmet on. You're about to go for a several-thousand-year-old ride and Aristotle ain't going to make it easy for you. (That's what we're here for.). Book 6, Chapters Having discussed virtues of character, Aristotle turns to virtues of thought. As he did before discussing the other virtues, he reviews the components of the soul. Again, the soul has two parts: one rational, one nonrational.

The premise of moral virtue is that human beings appear to be the cause of their own actions. It is in this light that we need to look at Aristotle's lengthy discussion of volition and intention. For if human beings act only as a response to external stimuli or even to internal stimuli such as desires, then there can be no such thing as virtue. Virtue ethics describes the character of a moral agent as a driving force for ethical behavior, and it is used to describe the ethics of Socrates, Aristotle, and other early Greek philosophers. Socrates (– BC) was one of the first Greek philosophers to encourage both scholars and the common citizen to turn their attention from the outside world to the condition of humankind.

  Published shortly after his death in , Ethics is undoubtedly Spinoza's greatest work—a fully cohesive philosophical system that strives to . The debate about our treatment of nonhuman animals has been traditionally dominated by moral philosophers, and the crucially important role of politics has been hitherto neglected. This innovative edited collection seeks to redress the imbalance by interrogating some vital questions about this so-called ‘political turn’ in animal ethics.
