A concise, expert account of Aristotle's life and ideas, and an explanation of their influence on man's struggle to understand his existence in the world. The book also includes selections from Aristotle's work; a brief list of suggested reading for those who wish to push further; and chronologies that place Aristotle within his own age and in the broader scheme of philosophy.
These concise and enlightening explorations of the world's greatest thinkers bring their ideas to life in an entertaining and accessible new fashion. Each book includes a sprightly biographical essay, which includes a view of the man and a simplified (but not simplistic) explanation of his basic ideas and arguments, followed by a selection of quotations from the philosopher's works, a brief list of suggestions for further reading, and chronologies that place the philosopher within his own age and in the broader scheme of philosophy.
