This volume, emanating from the Fourth Keeling Colloquium in Ancient Philosophy, presents essays and comments by nine outstanding scholars of ancient philosophy, which examine the influence of Plato on the development of Aristotle's ethics. The essays focus on the role of pleasure in happiness and the good life (Christopher Taylor and Sarah Broadie), the irreducibility of ethical concepts to value-neutral concepts (Anthony Price and Sarah Broadie), the relation of virtue to happiness (Roger Crisp and Christopher Rowe, Terry Irwin and Sir Anthony Kenny), the role of the requirement of self-sufficiency in determining the content of happiness (John Cooper and Sir Anthony Kenny), and the question of whether the just man should be a participant in the political life of his city (Richard Kraut and Christopher Rowe).

About the Series

Ashgate Keeling Series in Ancient Philosophy

Ashgate Keeling Series in Ancient Philosophy
The Ashgate Keeling Series in Ancient Philosophy presents edited collections of leading international research which illustrate and explore ways in which ancient and modern philosophy interact. Drawing on original papers presented at the S.V.Keeling Memorial Lectures and Colloquia at University College London, this series incorporates contributions from the Anglo-American philosophical tradition and from continental Europe, and brings together scholars internationally recognised for their work on ancient philosophy as well as those whose primary work in areas of contemporary philosophy speaks of the importance of ancient philosophy in modern philosophical research and study. Each book in the series will appeal to upper-level and graduate students and academic researchers worldwide - both those who are interested in ancient philosophy and those who are working in the relevant areas of contemporary philosophy.
