Aristotle, Nicomachean Ethics, trans. Robert Bartlett and Susan Collins (University of Chicago Press, 2011).
Do not suppose, that in thus appealing to the ancients, I am throwing back the world two thousand years... While we are men, we cannot help, to a great extent, being Aristotelians, for the great Master does but analyze the thoughts, feelings, views, and opinions of human kind... In many subject-matters, to think correctly, is to think like Aristotle; and we are his disciples whether we will or no, though we may not know it.
