ARISTOTELIAN CORPUS

These are scientific treatises, in places hardly more than mere outlines, though for the larger part fully written out arguments; presumably they are records of Aristotle's doctrine made for his pupils, and preserved in the library of the Peripatetic School. The other class of his writings, now lost, were more popular expositions intended for the general reader; some of them were in dialogue form. They were published, and they are alluded to as νκδεδομèνοι λóγοι.

The former group includes three works on the philosophy of conduct, entitled the Eudemian Ethics, the Nicomachean Ethics and Magna Moralia. The two former are full scientific treatises, in eight and ten Books respectively.
