Aristotle wrote on everything from the shape of seashells to sterility, from speculations on the nature of the soul to meteorology, poetry, art, and even the interpretation of dreams. Apart from mathematics, he transformed every field of knowledge that he touched. Above all, Aristotle is credited with the founding of logic. When he first divided human knowledge into separate categories, he enabled our understanding of the world to develop in a systematic fashion.… (mere)

Eh, it was okay. This is the fourth "90 minute" book I've listened to (audiobooks), and it felt less insightful than the others. I was hoping for a little more content and summarized material on Aristotle's thought than he gave. If you know nothing at all, maybe a decent place to start, but there are probably better books to reference. ( )

Another Audible.com free book from the "Channels" program and another slow day in the shop.

Aristotle is responsible for the beginnings of scientific classifications of plants and animals. He is also known as the father of logic. He is also accidentally created metaphysics. When his works were being put together subjects were recorded as geology and physics. The section after physics was called in "after physics" or in Greek metaphysics. His writings and interest were well rounded and much more diverse than Socrates or Plato. He even expanded out into psychology -- memory and dreams.

Aristotle's work was lost to the west for five centuries. It was Thomas Aquinas who is responsible for returning Aristotle to the West. He blended Christian theology with Aristotle which was translated from Arabic.

This is a 90 minute that just does not do justice to the philosopher. 90 minutes is just not enough time. It is also more of a biography than a philosophy lesson. ( )

This is another in the Strathern series on philosophers. I found this work to be more succinct than the one on Socrates. Strathern gets criticized for leaving too much out, but these books serve their purpose. For me, they give an overview of the philosopher's life, his context, and some of his contributions to later thought and even modern society before I read the subject's work.

Aristotle was a polymath who studied under Plato and developed the formal discipline of logic. Christian apologetics today hinges on the use of Aristotelian logic, which is why Christian classical schools teach dialectic and logic early on. Aristotle apparently rivaled Plato as he developed, which led to some separation between the philosophers. He made contributions to many areas, including science, and the author also points out many things he was remarkably wrong about. There is an argument that paradigm kept Aristotle from discovering truths he perhaps should have, such as the earth orbiting the sun rather than vice-versa.

I find it interesting that Aristotle, like many of the Greek philosophers and writers, was largely forgotten or ignored by the West until about the Renaissance, but all of his works were studied by Islamic peoples and Aristotelian thought permeates Islamic doctrine.

In 2015, I intend to read Aristotle's Politics along with Plato's Laws. Strathern alleges that Aristotle's work is more pragmatic, rather than constructing the ideal society he sets out how to govern in reality. I want to complete these, some Seneca, and Marcus Aurelius' Meditations before tackling Augustine's City of God. 4 stars out of 5. I enjoy Strathern's series. ( )

My copy of this book was hardback and unadorned with any frivolous illustrations, which inclined me to take it seriously. But within, it was like a lightweight encyclopedia article. These books are useful, because they give one a framework for further reading, but whenever the author injects his own thoughts or experiences into the writing they start to seem hopelessly trivial.
