    The Double Ergon Scheme in Aristotle’s Protrepticus.Jakub Jirsa - 2023 - Eirene: Studia Graeca Et Latina 59 (1-2):29-65.
    The article presents the first comprehensive interpretation of the ergon argument in Aristotle’s Protrepticus. It further argues that Aristotle in this argument distinguishes the ergon of an entity from the ergon of its virtue thus presenting a complicated argumentative structure which is explicitly simplified in the Eudemian Ethics.
