Essays on Plato and Aristotle by J. L Ackrill( )

38 editions published between 1997 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,581 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

J.L. Ackrill's work on Plato and Aristotle has had a considerable influence upon ancient philosophical studies in the late twentieth century. In his writings the rigour and clarity of contemporary analytic philosophy are brought to bear upon ancient thought; in many cases he has provided the first analytic treatment of a key issue. Gathered now in this volume are the best of Ackrill's essays on the two greatest philosophers of antiquity. Here he examines a wide range of texts and topics - from ethics and logic to epistemology and metaphysics - which continue to be the focus of debate today

"Ever since its first appearance in 1960, this Concise Encyclopedia has been recognised as a classic, providing not only a guide to philosophy at its best, but some remarkable samples of it too.

The Concise Encyclopedia offers a lively, readable, comprehensive and authoritative treatment of Western philosophy as a whole, incorporating articles by many leading philosophical authors.
