The works of Aristotle are central to the Western philosophical tradition, and scholarship on Aristotle, especially in English, has burgeoned enormously in the last forty years. Aristotle: Critical Assessments collects together articles on Aristotle's philosophy otherwise scattered over many philosophical, classical and historical scientific journals. The set thus provides a significant resource for those approaching the literature for the first time and for those already studying Aristotle in a professional capacity. Aristotle has been so influential and remains so in so many distinct areas that it is often the case that, say, a reader is acquainted with the literature on metaphysics or ethics but knows nothing about the literature on psychology or the philosophy of biology.
Guided by new editorial introductions, this set guides the researcher, teacher or student through the issues of major concern in contemporary Aristotelian scholarship in the English-speaking world. The articles are arranged as follows:
* Volume I covers Logic and Metaphysics
* Volume II covers Physics, Cosmology and Biology
* Volume III covers Psychology and Ethics
* Volume IV covers Politics, Rhetoric and Aesthetics
This series includes a rich backlist of some of the most important and influential philosophers from throughout the ages – including works on Plato, Nietzsche, Socrates and Rene Descartes. The latest addition to the series covers Daniel Dennett – considered one of the most central voices in the philosophy of mind for at least the past forty years.
