(1) THE thanks of all English-speaking students of philosophy and of the history of science are owing for the steady progress which is being made by the Oxford Press in the translation into English of the whole Aristotelian corpus. With regard to the works under review, the student of ethics who is not also a first-rate Greek scholar, owes a special debt of gratitude to Mr. J. Solomon and to Mr. St. George Stock: to the former for his very accurate version of the “Eudemian Ethics.” As Mr. Solomon and Mr. Stock both point out, this work has generally been neglected by Aristotelian scholars. But this neglect is surely unreasonable. The “Eudemian Ethics” is at least a commentary on Aristotle's own “Ethics” by a personal pupil reputed to have been best acquainted with Aristotle's mind, and should therefore be authoritative for the understanding of the master's meaning.
