"This is C. D. C. Reeve's entirely new version of Aristotle's
fascinating, and at the same time superbly difficult, text. The
translation is faithful, concise, and extraordinarily thoughtful.
Any student of the De Anima will no doubt greatly profit from it.
Reeve's Introduction focuses on the place of the study of the soul
in Aristotle's biology andcontroversiallytheology. With this he
provides a refreshing and highly instructive counterpoint to an
idea still very powerful in the secondary literature. This is the
thought that the De Anima pertains to the province of 'the
philosophy of mind.' Reeve shows that the De Anima is much more
than this. A remarkable contribution." Klaus Corcilius, University
of California, Berkeley and The University of Tubingen
"This is an excellent translation of Aristotle's De Anima or On the Soul , part of C.D.C. Reeve's impressive ongoing project of translating Aristotle's works for the New Hackett Aristotle . Reeve's translation is careful and accurate, committed to faithfully rendering Aristotle into English while making him as readable as possible. This edition features excellent notes that will greatly assist readers (especially in their inclusion of related passages that illuminate the sections they annotate) and an introduction that situates the work within Aristotle's scientific method and his overall view of reality."
