Description

Though Aristotle is rarely mentioned, the Introduzione alla morale is clearly based on the Nicomachean Ethics, as it appears from the long section on virtues as medium terms among opposite vices, as well as in the final section on justice. The work is very close in content and structure to the Introduzione alle virtù morali witnessed by ms. Bologna, BArch, 1685, of which it might be a reworking or an alternative version.
