Overview

Posterior Analytics is a work by Aristotle.
Aristotle 384-322 BC) was a Greek philosopher and scientist born in the city of Stagira, Chalkidice, on the northern periphery of Classical Greece. His father, Nicomachus, died when Aristotle was a child, whereafter Proxenus of Atarneus became his guardian. At eighteen, he joined Plato's Academy in Athens and remained there until the age of thirty-seven (c. 347 BC). His writings cover many subjects - including physics, biology, zoology, metaphysics, logic, ethics, aesthetics, poetry, theater, music, rhetoric, linguistics, politics and government - and constitute the first comprehensive system of Western philosophy. Shortly after Plato died, Aristotle left Athens and, at the request of Philip of Macedon, tutored Alexander the Great starting from 343 BC. According to the Encyclopædia Britannica, "Aristotle was the first genuine scientist in history ... [and] every scientist is in his debt."

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Oxford is to be commended for giving Barnes the opportunity to improve upon a work that even in its first edition was one of the outstanding volumes in the series."—Isis

"...the notes in Posterior Analytics second edition are crisp and incisive, and offer a dazzling array of opinions that are original with Barnes or are argued for in original ways....the commentary is immensely learned and abounds with references to ancient texts and to secondary literature."—Ancient Philosophy
