LPHI 2050 - Aristotle, Nicomachean Ethics

Description
In this course we will perform a close reading of Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics. Our methodology will be largely philological — we will focus on Aristotle’s technical vocabulary. We will collectively inquire into the use and meaning of key ethical terms such as arete, phronesis, ethos, physis, logos, erga, sophrosune, and hedone. Thematically, we will consider Aristotle as a pleasure theorist, and will analyze the role that pleasure and desire play in what he considers to be a good and virtuous life. An understanding of Aristotle’s contribution to ethical thought remains relevant both to a rigorous grasp of the history of philosophy and to the consideration of own’s own ethical comportment. A background both in ancient philosophy and key Aristotelian texts is helpful but not required.
