The Cambridge companion to Aristotle by Jonathan Barnes( Book )

39 editions published between 1994 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,469 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aristotle is one of the very greatest thinkers in the Western tradition, but also one of the most difficult. The contributors to this volume do not attempt to disguise the nature of that difficulty, but at the same time they offer a clear exposition of the central philosophical concerns in his work. Approaches and methods vary and the volume editor has not imposed any single interpretation, but has rather allowed legitimate differences of interpretation to stand. An introductory chapter provides an account of Aristotle's life, and then guides the reader through the complex subject of what Aristotle actually wrote as a basis for characterising his philosophical development. Subsequent chapters cover Aristotle's writings on logic, metaphysics, science, psychology, ethics, politics, rhetoric, and poetics. It is a basic assumption of the Companion that its readers will not know Greek
The complete works of Aristotle : the revised Oxford translation by Aristotle( Book )

16 editions published between 1984 and 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,397 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Originally published in 12 volumes between 1912 and 1954, the Oxford Translation of Aristotle is universally recognized as the standard English version of Aristotle. It is a valuable contribution to studies of Aristotle and is regularly referred to by scholars of all nationalities. Now Princeton University Press makes available the complete works in two volumes. The volumes contain the substance of the original Translation, revised by Jonathan Barnes in the light of recent research. Three of the original versions - Categories, On Interpretation, and Posterior Analytics - have been replaced by more modern translations. A new and enlarged selection of Fragments has been added. A generous index provides indispensable aid to the scholar."--Publisher's description
The modes of scepticism : ancient texts and modern interpretations by Julia Annas( Book )

23 editions published between 1985 and 2003 in English and French and held by 787 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Modes of Scepticism is one of the most important and influential of all ancient philosophical texts. The texts made an enormous impact on Western thought when they were rediscovered in the 16th century and they have shaped the whole future course of Western philosophy. Despite their importance, the Modes have been little discussed in recent times. This book translates the texts and supplies them with a discursive commentary, concentrating on philosophical issues but also including historical material. The book will be of interest to professional scholars and philosophers but its clear and non-technical style makes it intelligible to beginners and the interested layman

72 editions published between 1978 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 639 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"By and large, scholars have asked what the Presocratics said, and what external circumstances may have prompted their sayings; they have not asked whether the Presocratics spoke truly, ow whether their sayings rested on sound arguments. It is those latter questions with which my book is primarily concerned."--Preface, p.xi

Posterior analytics by Aristotle( Book )

28 editions published between 1975 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Posterior Analytics contains some of Aristotle's most influential thoughts in logic, epistemology, metaphysics, and the philosophy of science. The first book expounds and develops the notions of a demonstrative argument and of a formal, axiomatized science, and investigates in particular the theory of definition. For the second edition of this volume, the translation has been completely rewritten; and the commentary, which is done with the needs of philosophical readers in mind, has been thoroughly revised in the light of the scholarship of the last twenty years

Aristotle's ethics : writings from the complete works by Aristotle( Book )

13 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aristotle's moral philosophy is a pillar of Western ethical thought. It bequeathed to the world an emphasis on virtues and vices, happiness as well-being or a life well lived, and rationally motivated action as a mean between extremes. Its influence was felt well beyond antiquity into the Middle Ages, particularly through the writings of St. Thomas Aquinas. In the past century, with the rise of virtue theory in moral philosophy, Aristotle's ethics has been revived as a source of insight and interest. While most attention has traditionally focused on Aristotle's famous Nicomachean Ethics, there are several other works written by or attributed to Aristotle that illuminate his ethics: the Eudemian Ethics, the Magna Moralia, and Virtues and Vices. This book brings together all four of these important texts, in thoroughly revised versions of the translations found in the authoritative complete works universally recognized as the standard English edition. Edited and introduced by two of the world's leading scholars of ancient philosophy, this is an essential volume for anyone interested in the ethical thought of one of the most important philosophers in the Western tradition
