Book Description:

A translation of Aristotle, informed by Aristotle’s works.

From the Back Cover:

The Focus Philosophical Library publishes clear, faithful editions by renowned scholars and teachers enabling access for modern students to essential ideas and wisdom of the world’s greatest thinkers.

“What strikes me most in this welcome new translation of Aristotle’s Politics is the sense of Aristotle as a man thinking carefully how to speak about political realities he studied and witnessed, rather than a treatise-builder expounding political doctrines.”
—Nathan Andersen, Eckerd College

“This fact alone sets Joe Sachs apart from all other recent translators of the Politics: he is the only one who is not a specialist in one area of Aristotelian philosophy and his holistic command of the corpus allows him to deliver the most nuanced and precise translations available in English.”
—Antonio Marino López, Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México

“Joe Sachs has an extraordinary ability to render ancient Greek into English sentences that are so clear and direct that they help readers to look past Aristotle’s technical terminology and reflect on the philosophical issues in the text.”
—Edward Halper, University of Georgia

“This translation is a must, both for scholars working on or otherwise interested in Aristotle’s Politics as well as for students and others who might be reading this text for the first time.”
—Corinne Painter, Washtenaw Community College

Joe Sachs taught for thirty years at St. John’s College in Annapolis, Maryland. His other translations for the Focus Philosophical Library include Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics and Poetics.
Lijun Gu has been a tutor at St. John’s College in Annapolis, Maryland, since 1996.
