Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics – Books IV – VI: recording

We had a good call tonight discussing Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics Books IV – VI. 

We discussed a wide range of issues: liberality, generosity, moral virtue, justice, practical wisdom.

And we prepared for our call with Barry Schwartz in September.
