Edith Hall

Aristotle spent his early years as an advisor to kings, but eventually made Athens his permanent home in the fourth century BCE. In this later period of his life, he dedicated himself to exploring philosophy and ethics. Central to his teachings was the question of how we ought to live our lives. According to Aristotle, the answer lies in leading a mindful existence. This involves making thoughtful decisions, utilizing rhetoric for legitimate argumentation rather than manipulation, cultivating various types of friendship while respecting their limits, and above all else, embracing moderation as the ultimate virtue.

What's it about?

In Aristotle's Way, the author explores the life and teachings of Aristotle, a renowned philosopher from Ancient Greece. However, this book goes beyond a traditional academic analysis of his work and instead brings Aristotle to life in our modern context. Topics such as friendship, happiness, communication, critical thinking, and personal fulfillment were central to Aristotle's philosophy back then - and they continue to hold immense relevance today after thousands of years.
