Surveying the latest research on Aristotle's thought, from ethics and aesthetics to the natural sciences, this Companion includes chapters written by leading international scholars.
Claudia Baracchi is Associate Professor of Moral Philosophy at the University of Milano-Bicocca, Italy. Her previous publications include Aristotle's Ethics as First Philosophy (Cambridge University Press, 2008) and Of Myth, Life, and War in Plato's Republic (Indiana University Press, 2002).
Finally we have a companion to Aristotle that represents the diversity of contemporary approaches to his work, even to the extent of making accessible for the first time in English indispensable scholarship from Europe, that demonstrates the continuing relevance of this work, and that provides the necessary tools, especially in the form of an excellent bibliography and glossary, for further research. It is to this volume I will now direct my students as their first stop in the study of Aristotle. -- Francisco Gonzalez, Professor of Philosophy, University of Ottawa, Canada
Keenly responsive to the labors of thinking philosophically, rigorously argued, and illuminatingly structured, this volume is an invaluable contribution to the study of Aristotle. The index alone is indispensable reading for Aristotle scholars and historians of philosophy. * Sara Brill, Associate Professor of Philosophy, Fairfield University, USA *
This new collection of essays features a number of European and Anglo-American authors who write in the Continental rather than the analytic tradition; some are not native English speakers (though their essays are translated into English here). These factors are what most distinguish this volume from those in the competing series. -- J. Hoffman, University of North Carolina at Greensboro * CHOICE *
