“Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human existence” – attributed to Aristotle

Along with Plato and Socrates, Aristotle (384-322 B.C.) is one of the triumvirate of philosophers responsible for the establishment of Western philosophy as it exists today. Socrates, Plato and Aristotle were among the first to refine philosophical thought, and Socrates is credited with devising the Socratic Method as a way to argue and debate points rationally. The Ancient Greek philosophers further stressed the importance of virtue and stoicism, advocating the improvement of one’s self through constant learning and knowledge. These teachings and practices formed the foundation for philosophy and psychology as fields of study.

Still, Aristotle was very much his own philosopher. Though he studied at Plato’s famous academy, he was not hesitant to counter or criticize Plato’s philosophical stances on certain issues.

Aristotle was the most renowned Ancient Greek philosopher for nearly 2,000 years, and his most famous work is Rhetoric, his preeminent treatise on the art of persuasion. Aristotle is widely credited with being the forbearer of the study of the art of rhetoric.

This edition of Aristotle’s Poetics is specially formatted with a Table of Contents and is illustrated with over a dozen pictures.

The boy stumbled across the border, cut and bleeding. He fell over, a gash on the side of his head. A hellhound paced outside of the border to camp, trying to get in. Gavinscrambled back.

She squeezes jason's hand grimly and sprints to the hill. She draws her sword. It glows dark purple. A glowing aura surrounds her. The blessing of Aphrodite. She charges the monsters.

She runs in, a hell hound at her heels. She passed through the gate and the hell hound bonks its head on the barrier like gateway. "Ha! Take that, demon dog!"

She faltered before reluctantly nodding. "I understand," she murmured.
