|Summary:|| The question of moral realism?whether our ethical beliefs rest on some objective foundation?is one that mattered as much to Aristotle as it does to us today, and his writings on this topic continue to provide inspiration for the contemporary debate. This volume of essays expands the fruitful conversation among scholars of ancient philosophy and contemporary ethical theorists on this question and related issues such as the virtues, justice, and Aristotle's theory of tragedy. The distinguished contributors to this volume enrich and clarify both Aristotle's views and the contemporary debates.
