Since the publication of the original edition in 1947, Richard McKeon's Introduction to Aristotle has become the standard text for a variety of courses in philosophy and the humanities. For this revised and enlarged edition, Professor McKeon has completely rewritten his General Introduction and his introductions to the particular works. He has also expanded the collection to include material from On the Parts of Animals and the Rhetoric.
Aristotle's contribution to Western civilization is enormous. Our language, our distinctions, our ways of thinking, all are profoundly affected by his work. Since an understanding of Aristotle is indispensable for the understanding of our own culture, the ready availability of his work is crucial.
This collection, for students and general readers alike, provides in one volume Posterior Analytics (Logic), De Anima (On the Soul), Nicomachean Ethics, and Poetics, complete and unabridged, together with generous selections from Physics, On the Parts of Animals, Metaphysics, Politics, and Rhetoric. These works, together with Professor McKeon's revised introductions, provide a convenient and thorough exposure to the works of Aristotle and to the structural interrelations in the Aristotelian system of thought.

"The achievement of Aristotle can be discovered only by reading and rereading his works....The Middle Ages may seem to have exaggerated in calling him The Philosopher, but the understanding of what he said is still an unparalleled introduction to philosophy."
Includes the complete Posterior Analytics, De Anima, Nichomachean, Ethics, and Poetics with selections from Physics, Metaphysics, and Politics
