Overview

Aristotle (384 - 322 B.C.) taught logic to Alexander the Great and, by virtue of his philosophical works, to every philosopher since, from Marcus Aurelius, to Thomas Aquinas, to Mortimer J. Adler. Now Adler instructs the world in the uncommon common sense of Aristotelian logic, presenting Aristotle's understandings in a current, delightfully lucid way. He brings Aristotle's work to an everyday level. By encouraging readers to think philosophically, Adler offers us a unique path to personal insights and understanding of intangibles, such as the difference between wants and needs, the proper way to pursue happiness, and the right plan for a good life.

Because Aristotle's wisdom and philosophical insights are grounded in the common experience, this easy-to-listen-to exposition of his thought confirms convictions that most hold. 4 cassettes.

    Good book,but...

    The title at the top of the pages reads "ARISTOTILE FOR EVERYBODY". Hopefully this isn't an indication of the overall proofreading quality of the book. However Adler more than held up his side of the bargain.

    now the world makes a little more sence

    I really enjoyed reading this book. it was brief and to the point. The examples offered by Adler give a clear picture of what Aristotle was getting at. The later influence of his writings on Christianity are evident and one can even see the truth of Christ being shown in bursts. It is simple everyday philosophy that can help people to direct their lives, to 'live well' as Aristotle would say.
