Overview

A Companion to Aristotle provides in-depth studies of the main themes of Aristotle's thought, from art to zoology. Comprising a total of forty essays, it includes sections on his views on metaphysics, psychology, biology, ethics, politics, rhetoric, and art. Written by well-known scholars of the Aristotelian corpus, these essays not only articulate the most widely accepted accounts of Aristotle's views on certain topics and the assumptions and arguments used to support them, but also offer new ways of reading controversial texts and analyzing complex arguments that lead to original ways of interpreting his writings. Thus the volume provides a comprehensive picture of the central tenets of the complex Aristotelian philosophical system and will assist the reader in seeing the structure of the philosopher's arguments and the different ways they can be analyzed or interpreted.

This Companion will be an excellent aid both to undergraduate and graduate students as well as to scholars and general readers of the Aristotelian texts.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Georgios Anagnostopolous is to be congratulated on completing what must have been a time-consuming and exacting task. Even those few essays in this volume that might (arguably) lack the sure and effortless touch contain solid and respectable contributions and the bar has been set pretty high by most of these authors." (Bryn Mawr, 2010)

"This companion will be a useful resource for undergraduate and graduate students, as well as scholars." (CHOICE, 2009)
