Individual and Conflict in Greek Ethics

Synopsis

Nicholas White opposes the long-standard view that ancient Greek ethics is fundamentally different from modern ethical views, especially those prevalent since Kant. White examines the ways in which Greek ethics has been interpreted since the eighteenth century, and traces the history, in Greek ethical thought, of the idea of conflict among human aims, in particular the conflict between conformity to ethical standards and one's own happiness. White's fresh, challenging perspective will demand the attention of anyone working on the history of ethics.
