Language: English . Brand New Book. Interest in Theophrastus, Aristotle s pupil and successor as head of the Peripatetic School, has increased considerably since the 1992 publication of Theophastus of Eresus: Sources for his Life, Works, Thought and Life. Now comes an extensive commentary on the ethical sources. It considers Theophrastus in relation to Aristotle, to other members of the Peripatos and to the Stoic philosophers who became Theophrastus rivals. Special attention is given to Theophrastus insistence that virtue by itself cannot guarantee happiness. Also to the difference between manners and moral virtue, the relation between innate character and fate, the value of marriage and how animal behavior relates to that of human beings.

Synopsis : Commenting on recently collected sources for Theophrastus' ethical views, this work relates Theophrastean doctrine to that of Aristotle and the rival Stoics. The focus is on topics like virtue and happiness, manners and moral virtues, innate character and the relation of animals to humans.
Critique: "I cannot, in a brief review, do justice to this massive and magisterial piece of scholarship. [...] Each section reads very much like an essay on its subject, reflecting the breadth and depth of the author's understanding of this material and the secondary literature on it." Robert Mayhew, Seton Hall University, in BMCR 2011.12.52 (2011)
