Nicomachean Ethics is Aristotle's work in which he lays out, in ten books, how best to live. He does this by looking at how one can develop and nurture the kind of virtues it takes to become the type of human who is excellent - who thrives and lives a good life. The work is believed to be based on lectures Aristotle gave at the Lyceum, and the title is thought to refer to the fact that the book was dedicated to either his son or father, both who were called Nicomachus. The book became a core work of medieval philosophy and is considered one of the most important philosophical works of all time.
