In this timeless and profound inquiry, Aristotle presents a view of the psyche that avoids the simplifications both of the materialists and those who believe in the soul as something quite distinct from body.

Perhaps one of the best and most challenging of Aristotle's works, 'De Anima' is a combination of his amazing perception and observation and the kind of abstract reasoning that shines in all of his scientific inquiries.

Opening this volume, the Greek text, and J.A. Smith's translation - in that official-looking Barnes ed. Princeton edition of Aristotle that's on everyone's bookshelf - to the same passages, as I did recently with Chs. 4 and 5 of Book III is an eye-opening experience. I was shocked by the extent to which the Smith looks, next to the Sachs, like a loose paraphrase, even to my very limited Greek. (It doesn't take much linguistic acumen to tell when your translator is *leaving words out*!)

Read 1.1 and all of 2 and 3 (our seminar did more of book 2 than other classes).
I want to read On Memory and Recollection at some point.

(Greece: Αριστοτέλης)
(Arabic: أرسطوطاليس)

Aristotle (384–322 B.C.E.) numbers among the greatest philosophers of all time. Judged solely in terms of his philosophical influence, only Plato is his peer: Aristotle's works shaped centuries of philosophy from Late Antiquity through the Renaissance, and even today continue to be studied with keen, non-antiquarian interest. A prodigious researcher and wri...more
