To the Portal 2 fan...you shouldn't be picking up a philosophy book if you don't like Aristotle's name. To the person who thought it was boring, I have the same comment, you should never have picked up the book if you did not want to think. I enjoyed this book a great deal. Some was a bit hard to get and some I am not sure I agree with, however there was always the next essay from a different writer and a different point of view. I have several of the philosphy and pop culture books and plan on getting more. They are wonderfully entertaining, well if you are fairly intelligent and don't mind thinking. Philosophy and the Beatles will be my next.

I feel as if I should know this, but it wasn't on the OWLS, so would anyone care to tell me, what is Aristotle?
