Excerpt from The Moral Philosophy of Aristotle: Consisting of a Translation of the Nicomachean Ethics, and of the Paraphrase Attributed to Andronicus of Rhodes, With an Introductory Analysis of Each Book Four years ago one of the most eminent of English Aristotelians expressed the opinion that "the problem how to translate Aristotle into English has not yet been solved ... The problem is how to convey, in readable English, a philosophical style, full of technical terms for which we have no exact representatives. Circumlocution, or paraphrase, becomes necessary; the question is, how to use this with the greatest tact, so as, while conveying Aristotle's exact meaning, to retain something of his manner." (Sir Alexander Grant, art. Aristotle. in the 'Encyclopćdia Britannica,' 9th edition, vol. ii. p. 523.) The present work, though planned and begun before these remarks appeared, may be regarded as being, to some extent, in answer to the challenge which they imply. Its aim is to make the Nicomachean Ethics of Aristotle intelligible to a modern reader. It endeavours to do so chiefly by modifying the style in which tho original is written. For whether it be that the mind of an average Greek student was capable of greater concentration than the mind of an average English student, or that what remains is rather a rough draft than a completed treatise, there is no doubt that the style of Aristotle's work is to most modern readers intricate and obscure.
