Posterior analytics by Aristotle( )

4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 0 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

"Following the success of his first series of essays, Emerson offered the public his insights into additional facets of the human condition ...

Topics by Aristotle( )

4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Any 'property' rendered is always either essential and permanent or relative and temporary: e.g. it is an 'essential property' of man to be 'by nature a civilized animal': a 'relative property' is one like that of the soul in relation to the body, viz. that the one is fitted to command, and the other to obey
On the generation of animals by Aristotle( )

4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"That the male and the female are the principles of generation has been previously stated, as also what is their power and their essence. But why is it that one thing becomes and is male, another female? It is the business of our discussion as it proceeds to try and point out (1) that the sexes arise from necessity and the first efficient cause, (2) from what sort of material they are formed."--Publisher's description
Poetics by Aristotle( )

4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume brings together the three most original and influential ancient Greek treatises on literature. Artistotle's Poetics contains his treatment of Greek tragedy: its history, nature, and conventions, with details on poetic diction. Stephen Halliwell makes this seminal work newly accessible with a reliable text and a translation that is both accurate and readable. His authoritative introduction traces the work's debt to earlier theorists (especially Plato), its distinctive argument, and the reasons behind its enduring relevance. The essay On the Sublime, usually attributed to "Longinus" (identity uncertain), was probably composed in the first century A.D.; its subject is the appreciation of greatness ("the sublime") in writing, with analysis of illustrative passages ranging from Homer and Sappho to Plato and Genesis. In this edition, Donald Russell has judiciously revised and newly annotated the text and translation by W. Hamilton Fyfe and provides a new introduction. The treatise On Style, ascribed to an (again unidentifiable) Demetrius, was perhaps composed during the second century B.C. It seems to reflect the theoretical energy of Hellenistic rhetorical works now lost, and is notable particularly for its theory and analysis of four distinct styles (grand, elegant, plain, and forceful). Doreen Innes' fresh rendering of the work is based on the earlier Loeb translation by W. Rhys Roberts. Her new introduction and notes represent the latest scholarship

The science of right by Immanuel Kant( )

4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The theoretical knowledge of right and law in principle, as distinguished from positive laws and empirical cases, belongs to the pure science of right The science of right thus designates the philosophical and systematic knowledge of the principles of natural right. And it is from this science that the immutable principles of all positive legislation must be derived by practical jurists and lawgivers
Prior analytics by Aristotle( )

Review text: "Der Akademie-Band hat das oft voreilig vergebene Prädikat, grundlegend für die weitere Forschung zu sein, klar verdient; er ist nicht nur sowohl für die historische Exegese als auch für ein eher systematisch-logisches Interesse unentbehrlich, sondern auch Musterbeispiel eines einfühlsamen Kommentars, der weit über das bloße Textverständnis hinaus zur Einsicht in Aristoteles' Denken verhilft." Roman Eisele in: Zeitschrift für Philosophische Forschung, 64 (2010) 2
