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. This title includes Aristotle's idiosyncratic and influential account of light and colors.

Opening this volume, the Greek text, and J.A. Smith's translation - in that official-looking Barnes ed.

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
