In The ethics Aristotle examines the nature of virtue and the purpose of life. He believed virtue could be understood only through action - one had to be virtuous to know virtue. The work surveys all the areas of human concern; courage, generosity, honour, justice, friendship, wit, etc. Aristotle's ideas dominated western thinking until the renaissance. The Ethics is considered to be one of Aristotle's most accessible works.
