What People are Saying About This

Steven C. Fleishman

A short, sweet, and selective commentary and analysis of Aristotle's works and ideas. A fine adjunct to the reading of the translated texts. A highly recommended aid to the student meeting Aristotle ab initio. Boy, what a book!
—(Steven C. Fleishman, University of Maryland)

Tom Cunningham

No other work on Aristotle accomplishes so much in such brief compass; its author's care for and knowledge of Aristotle's achievements are evident on every page.
—(Tom Cunningham, Grand Valley State College)

Rose Maries Surwilo

As an introduction to Aristotle, I find Barnes' book ideal....his book presents the basics in an understandable manner for beginners.
