'One swallow does not make a summer; neither does one day. Similarly
neither can one day, or a brief space of time, make a man blessed and
happy' What does it mean to be a good person? Ranging over eternal
questions of right and wrong, pleasure and self-control, friendship and
courage, Aristotle's lectures on ethics are among the most lasting and
profound philosophical works of all time. One of twenty new books in the
bestselling Penguin Great Ideas series. This new selection showcases a
diverse list of thinkers who have helped shape our world today, from
anarchists to stoics, feminists to prophets, satirists to Zen Buddhists.
