Chapter Summary

Michael of Ephesus, when commenting on the last book of Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics, gives lengthy consideration to the empirical man and to a lesser extent the degree how this figure relates to the world of education/culture. This chapter concentrates on the structure and the possible coherence of Michael's ideas. It presents a series of translations that the author had made of passages from Michael's commentary. The references in the text are to the CAG edition of Michael's commentaries. Before discussing Michael's analysis of the relations between the empirical man, the scientist and the educated man, the chapter deals with two questions: what is modern scholarship's opinion regarding both Michael's commentaries In Ethica Nicomachea (EN) and his wider activity as a commentator; and, are the different positions proposed in the different commentaries logically consequent.

Keywords: Aristotle; In Ethica Nicomachea; Michael of Ephesus; Nicomachean Ethics
