Ethics after Aristotle is an important examination of the principal themes of philosophical ethics in the Peripatetic tradition from Theophrastus to Alexander. Inwood’s approach brings the collective significance of an often fragmentary—and, until recently, rather inaccessible—set of texts to the fore, both as an independent strand in Hellenistic philosophy deserving of study in its own right and as telling contributions to the central debates of the time.—Charles Brittain, Cornell University

Brad Inwood does an admirable job of introducing Peripatetic ethical thought to non-expert readers. His stimulating study is an important addition to the lively field of Hellenistic and Roman philosophy.—A. A. Long, University of California, Berkeley
