About the Author:

James S. Taylor has been a teacher of English and American literature, Humanities, Western Civilization, and Philosophy of Education, for over twenty years, in private schools and public colleges.

Review:

"There are relatively few persons who can analyze as clearly and as lucidly the writings of Aristotle, Plato, and Acquinas as does this author. Like Taylor's educational philosophy, he seeks to move his readers' affections and will as well as their intellects, and he does this successfully." -- Richard Harp, University of Nevada

"With pithy brevity he has managed to provide both a history of the treatment of poetic knowledge and to develop his own very persuasive account." -- Ralph McInerny, University of Notre Dame
