Description

Cesano's Ethics, which is a sort of paraphrase of Aristotle's Ethics, is dedicated to cardinal Ippolito II Este of Ferrara (cf. Fabroni 1792: 383-403); the work covers books I-IV. Since the author, who died in 1568, worked for Ippolito as of 1540, the Etica may be assigned to the period 1540s-1560s. The work witnesses the author's interest in linguistic issues and matters of translating from one language into an other.
