Description

The work is a treatise of moral philosophy conceived as a pedagogical tool since it follows the education and training of a noble man (gentiluomo) from childhood to first maturity. It is a sort of compendium/paraphrase of Aristotle's Ethics, but book 10 is left aside in order to make space for a chapter on marriage and economics (the latter based on Aristotle's Economics). The author promises a section on politics which was never written (though it is mentioned in the title).
