A reconstruction of Aristotle's systematic Psychology from the full range of his philosophical and scientific treatises. Special attention is given to Aristotle's theories of perception, learning and memory, motivation and emotion, and the development of the moral virtues within the political life of the community.

"An obvious work of love, a marvelous effort in which Professor Robinson's inimitable style takes us through an instructive overview of Aristotle's psychology...All psychologists will find something of value in this exceptional volume". -- JOSEPH RYCHLAK, Loyola University, Chicago
"I know of no contemporary philosopher who has a better style than Professor Robinson. His prose is lucid and lively. He has complete control of his material, moving easily from one topic to another...While written for the novice, the book nonetheless will delight the seasoned practitioner as he witnesses a first-rate contemporary mind gather ancient fragments into a unified whole". --JUDE P. DOUGHERTY, Editor, REVIEW OF METAPHYSICS
