Ethica d'Aristotile

Title

Ethica d'Aristotile

Description

Antonio Colombella, member of the Augustinian order, dedicates this translation of the Nicomachean Ethics - apparently based on the Latin text by Robert Grosseteste - to the young nobleman and merchant Pancrazio Giustiniani. The work includes an outstanding paratext (foreword and afterword) in which the translator approaches in a most interesting and critical way issues of translation discussing the opposition verbum de verbo / ad sensum as well as the contribution of the commentary tradition to understand those passages of the text which seem to be irremediably obscure.
