I aim to achieve a complete draft of a book that focuses on a key argument in Aristotle's Ethics--the function argument. I examine the many problems the argument poses, both for scholarly interpretation and also ones more broadly philosophical. In the book I attempt to resolve the scholarly problems, and, in doing so, to articulate more clearly the frame in which Aristotle approaches ethics and the sort of account of the human good he aims to provide. On the broader front, I seek to make a neo-Aristotelian ethics more plausible to modern ears. The book brings together threads of previous work.
