Preserved by Arabic mathematicians and canonized by Christian scholars, Aristotle’s works have shaped Western thought, science, and religion for nearly two thousand years. Richard McKeon’s The Basic Works of Aristotle–constituted out of the definitive Oxford translation and in print as a Random House hardcover for sixty years–has long been considered the best available one-volume Aristotle. Appearing in paperback at long last, this edition includes selections from the Organon, On the Heavens, The Short Physical Treatises, Rhetoric, among others, and On the Soul, On Generation and Corruption, Physics, Metaphysics, Nicomachean Ethics, Politics, and Poetics in their entirety.
"The influence of Aristotle upon modern culture has 'become more and more important in recent years. His contribution to the sum of wisdom dominates all our philosophy, pervades all our political theory and even gives direction to much of our science . Richard McKeon, Dean of the Division of Humanities, University of Chicago, under whose editorial direction this book was carried to completion, provides an illuminating introduction and analytical notes to accompany the text, designed to guide tb general reader through some of the intricacies of Aristotelian philosophy."Taken from the Dust Jacketread more
