Aristotle continues to provoke conflicting reactions in me. I am always torn between realizing his tremendous originality and historical importance, and suffering from his extraordinary dullness. This book exemplifies both sides of the coin. Seeing a man single-handedly create the field of logic, ex nihilo, is tremendous; yet reading through these treatises could put a coffee-addict in a coma.

I am not insensitive to the appeals of philosophy. Far from it; I think reading philosophy is thrilling.

Aristotle created logic. Literally.
Aug 13, 2012 Athens rated it 5 of 5 stars
Recommends it for: Anybody who wants to read Aristotle
Recommended to Athens by: Thomas Taylor, the Platonist

The book I am actually reading is Porphyry's Introduction, with preface by Thomas Taylor, which includes his translation of Proclus' preface.

This will require re-reading.

Unless you as a reader are a marvel of the civilized world in your very person, this material is not something you can simply read like a story.

It absolutely requires that if you are going to send any time AT ALL, you must, simply must, go over the text several times and from several directions in order to make any useful sen

Libro clave para la comprensión no ya de la dialéctica aristotélica, sino de toda su epistemología. La dialéctica de Aristóteles es simplemente incomparable, como ejercicio traté de hacer contrademostraciones cada que discrepaba con él o creía encontrar huecos en sus demostraciones, siempre para darme cuenta cómo después de unos cuántos párrafos, Aristóteles no dejaba espacio para el error.

Libro bastante pesado, necesita tiempo y dedicación.

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
