Happiness and External Goods in Nicomachean Ethics

Sabou, Sorin, Happiness and External Goods in Nicomachean Ethics (Pickwick Publications, 2019).
In this volume, Sorin Sabou explores the dependency of happiness on external goods in Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics. Sabou defends the following thesis: the dependency of happiness on external goods, in EN, is interpreted in the light of its political self-sufficiency, and in the light of our political humanity; this dependency is of three kinds: (1) enhancing-instrumental, (2) constitutive, and (3) subsistent.
