    Aside from some of the standard anachronistic interpretations that you find in this period of Aristotle scholarship, Ross work is terrifically comprehensive Specifically his treatment of the organon as well as Aristotle s metaphysics were both very clear and helpful guides His treatment of the poetics and rhetoric was typically banal, and the anachronistic reading of parts of the psychology was frustrating That said, the only other synoptic work on Aristotle that I think even approaches Ross depth is J Lear s book Aristotle The Desire to Understand which I still prefer.

    This book is a classic introduction to the philosophical thought of Aristotle, and with good reason It should be read by anyone who wishes to study philosophy, and by everyone who wants to get a better understanding of Aristotle s works.
