Congratulations to our colleague Brad Inwood who just published (together with Raphael Woolf) a new translation of Aristotle’s Eudemian Ethics!
Here’s an excerpt from the cover: “Aristotle’s Eudemian Ethics has been unjustly neglected in comparison with its more famous counterpart the Nicomachean Ethics. This is in large part due to the fact that until recently no complete translation of the work has been available. But the Eudemian Ethics is a masterpiece in its own right, offering valuable insights into Aristotle’s ideas on virtue, happiness and the good life. This volume offers a translation by Brad Inwood and Raphael Woolf that is both fluent and exact, and an introduction in which they help the reader to gain a deeper understanding both of the Eudemian Ethics and of its relation to the Nicomachean Ethics and to Aristotle’s ethical thought as a whole.”

A new book of CPAMP Alumnus Tom Angier is about to come out in November – already his third book! Congratulations.
Ethics: The Key Thinkers “surveys the history of Western moral philosophy, guiding students through the work and ideas of the field’s most important figures, from Plato to MacIntyre.” The book contains 11 chapters written by various experts and it “explores the contribution of each thinker in turn, narrating how they have changed the shape of ethical theory as a whole. The book also includes guides to the latest reading on each thinker. An ideal resource for
all students of ethics.”

To quote from the cover: “Thirteen new essays investigate the continuities between medieval and early modern thinking about the emotions, and open up a contemporary debate on the relationship between emotions, cognition, and reason, and the way emotions figure in our own cognitive lives. A team of leading philosophers of the medieval, renaissance, and early modern periods explore these ideas from the point of view of four key themes: the situation of emotions within the human mind; the intentionality of emotions and their role in cognition; emotions and action; the role of emotion in self-understanding and the social situation of individuals.”
The volume contains chapters by three CPAMP members: Peter King, Ian Drummond, and Martin Pickavé – and also a paper by this year’s CPAMP faculty visitor Dominik Perler! For more information see here.
