Overview

Aristotle - 'the master of those who know' - has been a major influence on the intellectual history of Europe and of the Islamic world, and his views still provide material for contemporary philosophical debate. Inevitably a thinker who has been so influential has been interpreted in many different ways, which have often involved a partial and one-sided appreciation of the nature of his thought.

Whose Aristotle, Whose Aristotelianism? is the first book to be published in the new Ashgate Keeling Series in Ancient Philosophy. Drawing on the proceedings of the second Keeling Colloquium at University College London, leading international scholars examine different aspects of Aristotle's influence and the reception and influence of Aristotelian philosophy in physics, metaphysics, logic, psychology and poetics. A distinctive feature of the book is the way in which it examines the responses to Aristotle of a number of major figures in intellectual history. The evaluation of these responses involves both authors and readers in their own reappraisal of Aristotle's doctrines, leading to new interpretations of Aristotle himself.
