Reviews

"This is the only English translation of the "Ethics" for those who want or need to know precisely, not just roughly, what Aristotle says. Readers now can behold the splendor of his conception of moral virtue and engage with its subtleties as well. The translation is accompanied by excellent notes, an interpretive essay, indices, and a highly useful glossary."--Harvey C. Mansfield, Harvard University
--Harvey C. Mansfield, Harvard University
"Barlett and Collins's translation of the "Nicomachean Ethics" is the best in English that I have read. It nicely couples a consistent faithfulness to Aristotle's Greek with a high degree of readability. This will be a real service to scholars and students."--Gerald M. Mara, Georgetown University

"There are several good editions of the "Nicomachean Ethics" currently available, but the Bartlett and Collins version is superior in several decisive respects--philological, philosophical, and pedagogical. The translation itself is consistently faithful to the text without lapsing into obscurity or awkwardness, with lots of helpful discussion (in just the right number of notes conveniently placed at the bottom of the page) of alternative possibilities at key points. Best of all, the thoughtful and well-crafted surrounding material--notes, glossary, introduction, and interpretive essay--supplies a marvelous guide to Aristotle's unique way of presenting the central questions of ethics and politics. This is the version I will use when next I teach the "Nicomachean Ethics"."--Stephen G. Salkever, Bryn Mawr College

"This translation will easily be the best available English version of the "Nicomachean Ethics"."--Michael Davis, Sarah Lawrence College

"[This volume] is much more than a translation. The translators, Robert C. Bartlett, who teaches Hellenic politics at Boston College, and Susan D. Collins, a political scientist at the University of Houston, have provided helpful aids. . . . [They have] supplied an informative introduction, as well as 'A Note on the Translation, ' a bibliography and an outline of the work. All this precedes the main text. Afterward comes a brief 'Overview of the Moral Virtues and Vices, ' a very extensive and invaluable glossary, a list of 'Key Greek Terms, ' an index of proper names and at last a detailed 'general index.' Together these bring the original text within the compass of every intelligent reader."--"New York Times Book Review"
