Philosophers of an analytic disposition have fruitful resources in the excellent editions by Terence Irwin 1 and by Sarah Broadie and Christopher Rowe, 2 while those with more continental or Straussian sympathies may turn to the translations of Joe Sachs 3 or of Robert Bartlett and Susan Collins. With so many translations of the Nicomachean Ethics already available, one could reasonably wonder whether there is need for yet another. A narrow approach to this question might focus on the relative merits of the translations in terms of accuracy and readability. A more comprehensive assessment, however, will account for the diverse needs of different sorts of reader. Teachers introducing undergraduates to Aristotle for the first time, advanced students engaging independently with the text, and professional scholars reasonably look for different things in a translation.

They combine a rare sensitivity to Aristotle's use of the Greek language with an English style that is straightforward and imaginative. But what makes Sachs's translations even more noteworthy is their attunement born of profound awareness of the untranslatability of this thought into modern philosophical concepts. For anyone seriously interested in Aristotle's philosophy, Sachs's translations are indispensable. In addition, his helpful glossaries not only explain his own translational choices, but also inform readers of common alternatives, thereby enabling them to cope with the secondary literature. His are my translations of choice, for both introductory and advance courses.
