(p.1) Introduction
Practices of Reason


Oxford University Press

This introductory chapter begins with a brief account of the genesis of this book, which seeks to elucidate the epistemological, metaphysical, and psychological foundations of Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics by showing (or, in some cases, sketching) its place in the context of Aristotle's broader philosophical enterprise. It then presents an overview of the book's four main chapters, representing four related perspectives on phronēsis and nous and their interrelations, which together lay bear the foundations — epistemological, metaphysical, and psychological — on which the Nicomachean Ethics is built.

Keywords:   Aristotle, Nicomachean Ethics, phronēsis, nous
