In Aristotle’s Ethics as First Philosophy, Claudia Baracchi demonstrates the indissoluble links between practical and theoretical wisdom in Aristotle’s thinking. Referring to a broad range of texts from the Aris- totelian corpus, Baracchi shows how the theoretical is always informed by a set of practices and, specifically, how one’s encounter with phe- nomena, the world, or nature in the broadest sense is always a matter of ethos. Such a “modern” intimation is shown to be found at the heart of Greek thought. Baracchi’s book opens the way for a comprehen- sively reconfigured approach to classical Greek philosophy.

Abstract

In Aristotle’s Ethics as First Philosophy, Claudia Baracchi demonstrates the indissoluble links between practical and theoretical wisdom in Aristotle’s thinking. Referring to a broad range of texts from the Aris- totelian corpus, Baracchi shows how the theoretical is always informed by a set of practices and, specifically, how one’s encounter with phe- nomena, the world, or nature in the broadest sense is always a matter of ethos. Such a “modern” intimation is shown to be found at the heart of Greek thought. Baracchi’s book opens the way for a comprehen- sively reconfigured approach to classical Greek philosophy.
