Abstract

'Greek Ethics', an undergraduate class taught by the British moral philosopher N.J.H. Dent, introduced this reviewer to the ethical philosophy of ancient Greece. The class had a modest purview - a sequence of Socrates, Plato and Aristotle - but it proved no less effective, in retrospect, than more synoptic level) appropriate focus. This excellent Companion will now serve any such class extremely well, allowing students a broader exposure that that traditional sequence, without sacrificing the class's circumscribed focus.
