This paper is focused on the semantic richness of the notion of epieikeia, and shows how it assumes an absolute centrality in the Aristotelian texts, both in terms of contents and of methodological approach. The notion of equity, in fact, besides being intersected in many ways with the different weaves of the justice, constitutes a productive theoretical figure, embodying, by means of the powerful model of the ‘lead’s ruler’, the ideal of an appropriate and accurate method according to its object of inquiry. By crossing the Aristotelian text, it is also possible to show that the figure of equity and of the equitable has got characteristics such as ‘capacity of finding what is appropriate’, ‘flexibility’, ‘availability to lose’, ‘capacity of understanding’, that characterize the notion of equity since its origin, trying to recover, as far as possible, the profiles of that ‘passionate justice’ or ‘with a human face’ that is the epieikeia.
