    1. It has been a long time since I read this, but this is an excellent read Sherman compares Kant and Aristotle, showing the closeness of their ethical thinking She argues that Kant is heavily influenced by the stoic ethics and their relationship to Aristotle s virtue ethic As she points out at the end, a comparison between these two thinkers provides clearer insight into both of their approaches.

    2. An easy to read book that has astounding analysis of Aristotle s virtue ethics The analysis of Kant is not as strong, but still worth a thorough read.
