Aristotle Nicomachean Ethics

Spring 2023

Taught By: Cinzia Arruzza

Section: A

CRN: 13415

Credits: 4

This course will be based on a close reading of two major works by Aristotle: Nichomachean Ethics and Politics. These two works comprise a unity, such that they both are concerned with the goal of the good life, or happiness. In reading and examining these texts together, we will discuss the relation between ethical virtues, nature and habits; contemplative and practical wisdom; and nature and political law. Moreover, we will focus on the role of the city in determining the possibility of the full realization of human capacities. This course will move largely through class discussion.
