Book Description:
The ancient Greeks have had the most significant impact on western thought, philosophy, and science. Chief among them towers the figure of Aristotle, who spent a great deal of time in Athens at Plato's Academy. Philip of Macedon took him on as the tutor to his son, Alexander the Great. Afterwards, Aristotle made his way back to Athens to begin his own school called the Lyceum. Aristotle was accused of impiety in a wave of anti-Macedonian sentiment after Alexanderís death; though he escaped, he died the next year. As a legacy, Aristotle left voluminous writings that spanned the gamut of scholarship: logic, metaphysics, ethics, politics, rhetoric, poetry, biology, zoology, physics, and psychology. These writings held enormous sway over medieval philosophy, Islamic philosophy , and on the entire Western intellectual and scientific tradition. His best-known writings today are Metaphysics, Nicomachean Ethics, Politics, Poetics, De anima and the Organon.
This book presents a compelling account of Aristotleís intriguing life, based on excerpts from Thomas Davidsonís important 1905 biography. The overview is augmented by a substantial and selective bibliography, featuring access through author, title, and subject indexes.

Table of Contents:
Preface; Overview (Thomas Davidson); Bibliography of the Literature; Author Index; Title Index; Subject Index.
