Second will come some discussion of particular passages where the differences look ejdemia substantive and 20 As so divided the Greek hardly makes sense. The other passages to be discussed afterwards will support that supposition, but since these other passages turn on verbal differences that may seem to be no more than scribal error, there is some value in discussing the first passage first.


The fact, however, that Ashburner anticipated Harlfinger is not the real value of his articles, which is rather that they contain, first, reviews of the relative merits of the respective mss.

Simpson – – Transaction Publishers. The difference in this interpretation is that the division does eudemiia concern being wronged by itself but being wronged and wronging together.

The main justification is the way the first option is stated being wronged is involuntary as wronging is involuntaryfor it associates being wronged and wronging in the same class of the involuntary. For since it is possible to do a wrong incidentally or involuntarily and so to do it without wronging or without being unjustis it possible to suffer a wrong involuntarily that someone inflicted incidentally or involuntarily?

Is all being wronged involuntary, as all wronging is involuntary?

EN, we may say, sticks to the legislative focus while EE goes beyond it. For to my fellow academic, David J. They are like the equitable, never insisting on more than they have, however little, but yielding to others who have not reached the same level of virtue.

For there are some for whom it is not possible to have an excess of them, as the gods perhaps, and others, the incurably bad, for whom no share can be of any benefit but it all harms them, and others for whom a share up to a point is beneficial.

The answer b is, first, that the equitable man can in a sense be getting more, namely of reputation or the noble, and, second, that, eudekia he acts voluntarily, then, as stated already bhe is not wronged but at most harmed.


EN moves from saying honor and the like are preferable in themselves, to saying they are not naturally preferable but in between, to saying they are noble and good. This idea gets support from the Eudemiia when Aristotle says that the household of man and wife and slave arises from natural desire and does not need any conscious or deliberate arranging by a legislator, as the political community does Pol.
