About-

In this volume, Sorin Sabou explores the dependency of happiness on external goods in Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics. Sabou defends the following thesis: the dependency of happiness on external goods, in EN, is interpreted in the light of its political self-sufficiency, and in the light of our political humanity; this dependency is of three kinds: (1) enhancing-instrumental, (2) constitutive, and (3) subsistent.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“Remarkable through erudition, through its detailed analyses and fresh approaches, Sabou's book offers a new reading of Aristotle’s inquiry on happiness . . . It's a book devoted to critically-minded students trained to penetrate the endless strata of surprising assumptions.”

—Valentin Muresan, University of Bucharest, Distinguished Research Fellow, Oxford Uehiro Center for Practical Ethics



“Dr. Sabou’s Happiness and External Goods in Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics is a very close and pleasingly technical study of Aristotle’s anthropology. The inclusion of in-text references to Aristotle’s work and footnotes referencing the secondary material make this a very useful piece of scholarship. In our present contentious political climate, a close reading of and meditation on the implications of Aristotle’s insight that humans are essentially social beings is beneficial. Sabou’s study is a very timely contribution.”

—Michael S. Jones, Professor of Philosophy and Theology, Liberty University
