Anyone who has even the slightest interest in Philosophy has to of course read Aristotle. However, reading the Ethics, Logic, Poetics, Physics and Metaphysics are satisfying in their own right. Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics are probably the most insightful and useful reconstruction of human ethical life that has been written. The Poetics are an exceptional source for an understanding of Greek Tragedy. And the Physics/Metaphysics are vital for anyone interested in the history of Religion and sci [...]
Much harder for me to read than Plato was. Plato used a story format and addressed more interesting topics whereas Aristotle often feels like he talks more about semantics. Both their influences have held back science, and perhaps in Aristotle's case, social progress. I suppose any figure of influence will have some negative impacts when they make mistakes. I'm more of a Platonist but I like Aristotle's objectivity, rules of logic, theories of potentiality to actuality, time as a measurement of [...]
Aristotle is one of the foundation authors on which I base my personal philosophy and he is also one of the greatest thinkers who ever lived. We only have what were notes to his lectures, yet reading them I feel the power of his mind is always present. The books included in this two-volume set range from the foundation of thinking of logic, scientific speculation on physics, psychology and astronomy, metaphysics, and moral guidelines with the Nicomachean Ethics perhaps the acme of his philosophy [...]
Aristotle is one of my right hand men. I just picked up this book about a month ago. I plan to read it in the near future.
The Complete Works of Aristotle, Volume 1 includes: Categories, De Interpretatione, Prior Analytics, Posterior Analytics, Topics, Sophistical Refutations, Physics, On the Heavens, On Generation and Corruption, Meteorology, On the Universe, On the Soul, Sense and Sensibilia, On Memory, On Sleep, On Dreams, On Divination in Sleep, On Length and Shortness of Life, On Youth, Old Age, Life and Death, and Respiration, On Breath, History of Animals, Parts of Animals, Movement of Animals, Progression of [...]
Intelligence and structured scientific insight into reality proclaimed while absolutely void of relevant tools we take for granted today. What i think about the writings of this character rightly remembered and unlikely forgotten is probably completely irrelevant. Plato was an author that tingles my brain and vocabulary tendencies to a higher degree. What ever i might think, anyone attempting to understand anything within the realm of any branch of science should read the book.
I bought this in college so I could read On the Heavens, Aristotle's early attempt at a cosmology (which he was to refine slightly in other books). I figured I might as well get the two-volume set since I was interested and had nothing better to do at the time. The two books together weight about ten or fifteen pounds. It should be a testament to my devotion to Aristotle that when I got all my books out of storage last weekend and had to pick which ones to load in my massive backpack so as not t [...]
Rating: D+OK, I'll confess. I'm not an Aristotle fan. I chose to read "Nicomachean Ethics", "Politics" and "Poetics" because it was on The New Lifetime Reading Plan by Clifton Fadiman. Obviously, around 350 B.C basic concepts regarding alternative governments and their variations had not been thought through too well. Aristotle does a great job of reasoning through all of the good and bad points in a logical progression. He does the same with what makes a person "Happy" and the good, bad and ugl [...]
I will not be giving a philosophical review of the writings of Aristotle for want of a focused topic. However, it is my belief that an understanding of Aristotle is fundamental to an understanding of our circumstances - he should, must be read. The scholar who wishes to make use of an index would do well to consult "Bonitz's Index Aristotelicus (Greek) or Organ's Index to Aristotle (English)" (2467 V2) for reasons indicated by the editor Jonathan Barnes and my own experiece using the provided in [...]
“He dared to ask and he thought over it, he questioned existence and sought enlightenment in its truest form. Till date most of the pages hold true because human nature is still the same. Its his lifetime of thoughts encapsulated in these volumes, one cannot just read and put it down. To comprehend the whole text will take this lifetime. Will keep coming back to it always for reference and guidance. ”
When approaching this collection of works it is important to keep in mind the fact that many of the books enclosed, have prerequisites. For example, it is expected you have read "Logic", and hopefully "Ethics" when you approach "Rhetoric".

The writings and teachings of Aristole. Thought provoking. A little difficult to read.
So far have only read 'Categories', 'Prior Analytics', and 'Posterior Analytics'. A giant of a mind! A is A.
Very thick and hard to get through. Unless you're a philosophy professor, stick to Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics.
"Happiness is an activity of the soul in accordance with virtue." —from the Nichomachaen Ethics Um, need I say more?
I prefer plato, aristole is beyond me.
A good starting point for anyone interested in philosophy, makes for an enjoyable read.
Aristotle is the master's master; he is, as Dante says, "the master of all who know."
to read this book
this is very heavy dialectic. not for a feeble intellect.
Where do you begin with this tome of human wisdom? If you're a serious thinker, Aristotle is a must. It's astounding that one man could have so many insights on so many subjects.
the only editions that have the access to all the works of Aristotle. excellent for anyone who loves the ancient philosophy. :)
