The Cambridge Companion to Aristotleby Jonathan Barnes
Synopses & Reviews
Aristotle is one of the greatest thinkers in the Western tradition, but also one of the most difficult. The contributors to this volume do not attempt to disguise the nature of that difficulty, but at the same time they offer a clear exposition of the central philosophical concerns in his work. Approaches and methods vary and the volume editor has not imposed any single interpretation, but has rather allowed differences of interpretation to stand.
This work is an accessible and comprehensive guide to Aristotle.
