About the Author

Terence Irwin is Professor of Ancient Philosophy in the University of Oxford, and Fellow of Keble College.


From reviews of the First Edition: "This refreshingly contemporary translation of Bywater's text . . . is admirably successful in its stated aim of being 'clear and explicit enough to show how Aristotle's argument proceeds, in general and in detail, and at the same time literal enough to show what grounds the text offers for different lines of interpretation'. It uses current English idiom and style with skill throughout, incorporating smoothly the more traditional renderings of technical terms, and will serve a timely and important purpose in making Aristotle's Ethics attractive and enlightening to new readers." Joseph Owens, University of Toronto "The translation is highly readable. . . . It is also remarkably accurate and faithful to the Greek. . . . The Glossary, both Greek-English and English-Greek . . . offers, in addition to bare equivalences, a series of short essays on all the key terms in the Ethics . . . which are clear, well-reasoned, scrupulously fair, and packed with references to the text. . . . Every student who wishes to read the Ethics in English should go for Irwin's translationindeed, they could hardly hope for anything better." Jonathan Barnes, University of Oxford
"The translation is absolutely reliable and is supplemented with notes that highlight any and all possible problems. Rich and easy to use. I love that 40 pages of supplementary texts from Aristotle are included. . . . Sometimes new editions seem pointless. This is worth it!" James C. Klagge, Virginia Tech
"I will certainly be using this third edition in the fall semester and subsequent semester. The second edition was already very good. This new edition makes it even better with its improved translation, expanded notes, and invaluable glossary." Peter Tumulty, St. Michael's College, VT
