About the “Virtues & Vices”
While the academics are pulling their hair, arguing about the authenticity of “Virtues & Vices”, there is a general agreement that this work, if not of the master himself, comes from the Aristotelian “school”. It seems more like a definitions’ manual of virtues and vices, than something else and as such can it be put to use. Plato’s division of the Soul (in Reason, Passions and Appetites) gives the structure within which the virtues and vices are placed. The audiobook contains the whole text, the sample only the first 3 minutes of the beginning. It is recorded in reconstructed ancient Greek. Click on the play button on the left of the original Greek text for listening.
Though Aristotle doesn’t need an introduction, in case you’d like to refresh your knowledge about his life and work, you can read enough in published books, or online at websites like: Encyclopedia Britannica, Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy, Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, Wikipedia, Biography.com, or elsewhere.
