I used to be completely looking ahead to this booklet on Aristotle and was once enormously dissappointed. The biographical cartoon of Aristotle is meager (and admittedly will be all that's on hand) and ninety% of the e-book is dedicated to a close examine of Aristotelian philosophy that's super tedious to learn. a part of the matter is that the ebook was once initially written within the Twenties utilizing a mode of writing that's essentially directed in the direction of a graduate point learn of Aristotle. The ebook can also be filled with typographical error that is rather unacceptable for a publication that's over eighty years previous and in its sixth edition.

I think this ebook may be useful for somebody searching for an exhaustive (although ponderously written) learn of Aristotelian philosophy, yet every body else will most likely desire to shop their hard-earned cash for whatever extra stress-free. We certainly want a sleek examine Aristotle alongside the traces of Luis Navia's terrific booklet on Socrates.
