This book has given rise to millennia of clear thinking and to millennia sophistica confusion. Some scholars hold that Aristotle’s arlstotle were not as much books as teaching notes. We cut him slack for being the inventor of the modern idea of logic and really, the first scientist.

Also, a lot of the discussion of the arguments is based around the fact that you would already know some arguments of people from the time – which means some of the examples are lost on me! Mar 20, Craig rated it really liked it. Artistotle is a smarty pants.

Aristoteles Aristotle — B. Judged solely in terms of his philosophical influence, only Plato is his peer: Aristotle’s works shaped centuries of philosophy from Late Antiquity through the Renaissance, Greece: Aristotle’s works shaped centuries of philosophy from Late Antiquity through the Renaissance, and even today continue to be studied with keen, non-antiquarian interest.
A prodigious researcher and writer, Aristotle left a great body of work, perhaps numbering as many as two-hundred treatises, from which approximately thirty-one survive. His extant writings span a wide range of disciplines, from logic, metaphysics and philosophy of mind, through ethics, political theory, aesthetics and rhetoric, and into such primarily non-philosophical fields as refuutations biology, where he excelled at detailed plant and animal observation and taxonomy. In all these areas, Aristotle’s theories have provided illumination, met with resistance, sparked debate, and generally stimulated the sustained interest of an abiding readership.
Because of its wide range and its remoteness in time, Aristotle’s philosophy defies easy encapsulation. The long history of interpretation and appropriation of Aristotelian texts and themes—spanning over two millennia and comprising philosophers working within a variety of religious and secular traditions—has rendered even basic points of interpretation controversial.
