The Nicomachean Ethics contains Aristotle’s deepest thoughts on how one ought to live. Aristotle speaks of moderation, virtues and the need to pursue an intellectual life. St. Thomas expounds upon the merit of Aristotle’s life, showing how this understanding can help the Christian to live a good life, while recognizing that grace makes the good life easier to live. The 2nd volume also includes the Tabula Libri Ethicorum, a table drawn up by St. Thomas that organizes the principal themes in the Nicomachean Ethics and Albert the Great’s commentary on the Nicomachean Ethics.
