Aristotle, Kant, and the Stoics: Rethinking Happiness and Duty
Stephen Engstrom, Jennifer Whiting
Cambridge University Press, Apr 13, 1998 - Philosophy - 310 pages
This major collection of essays offers the first serious challenge to the traditional view that ancient and modern ethics are fundamentally opposed. In doing so it has important implications for contemporary ethical thought, as well as providing a significant reassessment of the work of Aristotle, Kant and the Stoics. The contributors include internationally recognised interpreters of ancient and modern ethics.
