Ethics with the Ancient Greeks

This collection of nine essays on ancient Greek ethics is the best volume of its kind. Fine collections of papers have appeared in the last twenty years on the ethical thought of Aristotle and the Hellenistic schools, but this volume covers these figures as well as pre-Platonic ethics, Platonic ethics, and ancient theories of moral responsibility. All of the authors are world-class scholars of philosophy: Julia Annas, Stephen Everson, T.H. Irwin, Charles Kahn, John McDowell, Susan Sauvé Meyer, David Sedley, and C.C.W. Taylor. Stephen Everson's introduction argues, I think rightly, that ancient conceptions of virtue include ideas at the core of the modern notion of morality. These ideas include the notion of a reason for action that is responsive to others' interests rather than to our own interests alone, and the idea that such reasons have their normativity independently of our current desires. Each of the other essays offers an account of its figure's basic ethical ideas but spends most of its time critically and insightfully discussing those ideas. This is an important book for any serious student of the history of ethics. All Greek words are transliterated for those without knowledge of ancient Greek. The volume also has a useful bibliography and several indices.
