KIRKUS REVIEW

Here is a carefully selected representation of the most important works of the great Greek philosopher, -- seven books in full, seven in characteristic excerpts, all from the eleven volume Oxford translation, now available to students. Explanatory notes are retained; philological notes are omitted; pagination follows that of the standard Bekker edition of the Greek text. Aristotle belongs to the timeless great. The introduction by Dean McKeon of the University of Chicago, is an ordered presentation of Aristotle's doctrines, with a method for reading suggested as as a device. An understanding of Aristotle, says the editor, is an unparalleled introduction to philosophy. Important for students, colleges, etc.
