A new account of Aristotles Ethics, this book argues for the central importance of the concept of techne or craft in Aristotles moral theory. Exploring the importance of techne in the Platonic and pre-Platonic intellectual context in which Aristotle was writing, Tom Angier here shows that this concept has an important role in Aristotle's Ethics that has rarely been studied in Anglo-American scholarship. Through close-analysis of the primary texts, this book uses the focus on techne to systematically critique and renew Aristotelian moral philosophy. Techne in Aristotles Ethics provides a novel and challenging approach to one of the Ancient Worlds most enduring intellectual legacies.
