If you are curious about the writings of Aristotle, The Pocket Aristotle is a great place to start. It's definitely a smart buy before jumping right into something like The Nicomachean Ethics for example, as one needs to become inured to Aristotle's style. For those who have read Plato before purchasing this book, Aristotle's writings are completely different as he general sets out at the beginning of each chapter what he is trying to accomplish, what he feels is the best way to come about accomplishing that task, and what terms need to be defined. He does not reference Homer or other poets like Plato does to make points; instead, he relies on argument and even sometimes supposition. All in all, this is a great place to start, but I wouldn't declare it the most scholarly take on Aristotle ever.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
