The influence of Aristotle, the prince of philosophers, on the intellectual history of the West is second to none. In this book Jonathan Barnes examines Aristotle's scientific researches, his discoveries in logic and his metaphysical theories, his work in psychology and in ethics and politics, and his ideas about art and poetry, placing his teachings in their historical context.
Jonathan Barnes is Professor of Ancient Philosophy at the University of Geneva. He has edited the Revised Oxford Translation of Aristotle, and he is the author of books and papers on Aristotle and other ancient luminaries.
