Aristotle’s Ethics as First Philosophy

Congratulations to Claudia Baracchi for the publication of her book, Aristotle’s Ethics as First Philosophy, with Cambridge University Press.

The publisher’s description of the book reads as follows:

In Aristotle’s Ethics as First Philosophy, Claudia Baracchi demonstrates the indissoluble links between practical and theoretical wisdom in Aristotle’s thinking. Referring to a broad range of texts from the Aristotelian corpus, Baracchi shows how the theoretical is always informed by a set of practices, and, specifically, how one’s encounter with phenomena, the world, or nature in the broadest sense, is always a matter of ethos.

Claudia was the 2008 host of the Annual Independent meeting of the Ancient Philosophy Society at the New School in New York.  She is currently Associate Professor of Philosophy at the New School.
