Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Robinson's book is an extremely lucid and engaging overview of Aristotle's entire system of thought. . . . Accessible to beginning students. --Richard Kraut, Northwestern University

Excellent survey. . . . A model of lucidity, it should help teachers of philosophy in the initial stages of instruction on Aristotle. --R. B. Todd, University of British Columbia

Clearly written and provides students, bewildered by a first confrontation with Aristotle, with a key that will open the door to many of the chief ideas of the philosopher. I would also recommend it as a refreshing read to the more advanced philosopher. . . . just what the professor ordered (or can order) as the supplement to reading the original text in a course, especially an undergraduate one. --Joseph A. Novak, University of Waterloo
