Perception in Aristotle's Ethics
by Eve Rabinoff
Publisher: Northwestern University Press 2018
Number of pages: 206
The book seeks to demonstrate that living an ethical life requires a mode of perception that is best called ethical perception. Specifically, drawing primarily on Aristotle’s accounts of perception and ethics in De anima and Nicomachean Ethics, Eve Rabinoff argues that the faculty of perception (aisthesis), which is often thought to be an entirely physical phenomenon, is informed by intellect and has an ethical dimension insofar as it involves the perception of particulars in their ethical significance, as things that are good or bad in themselves and as occasions to act.

In our days morality has ceased to be a matter of unquestionable certainty, and has been drawn into the wave of disintegration which is passing over our minds. This text appeals less to students and philosophers than to the cultured public at large.
by Georgios Anagnostopoulos - University of California Press
The book offers the systematic critical examination of Aristotle's views on the exactness of ethics. The author gives form to Aristotle's belief that knowledge of matters of conduct can never be free of certain kinds of inexactness.
