The Oxford Translation of Aristotle was originally published in volumes between amp It is universally recognized as the standard English version of Aristotle This revised edition contains the substance of the original translation slightly emended in light of recent scholarship three of the original versions have been replaced by new translations and a new and enlarged selection of Fragments has been added The aim of the translation remains the same to make the surviving works of Aristotle readily accessible to English speaking readers, i The soul is so to speak the first principle of living things We seek to contemplate and know its nature and substance i br br For the Pre Socratic philosophers the soul was the source of movement and sensation while for Plato it was the seat of being metaphysically distinct from the body that it was forced temporarily to inhabit Plato s student Aristotle was determined to test the truth of both these beliefs against the emerging sciences of logic and biology His examination of the huge variety of living organisms the enormous range of their behaviour their powers and their perceptual sophistication convinced him of the inadequacy both of a materialist reduction and of a Platonic sublimation of the soul In De Anima he sought to set out his theory of the soul as the ultimate reality of embodied form and produced both a masterpiece of philosophical insight and a psychology of perennially fascinating subtlety br br Hugh Lawson Tancred s masterly translation makes i De Anima i fully accessible to modern readers In his introduction he places Aristotle s theories at the heart of contemporary debates on the philosophy of life and being, What is the relationship of the individual to the state What is the ideal state and how can it bring about the most desirable life for its citizens What sort of education should it provide What is the purpose of amassing wealth These are some of the questions Aristotle attempts to answer in one of the most intellectually stimulating works br Both heavily influenced by and critical of Plato s i Republic and Laws i i Politics i represents the distillation of a lifetime of thought and observation Encyclopaedic knowledge has never before or since gone hand in hand with a logic so masculine or with speculation so profound says H W C Davis in his introduction Students teachers and scholars will welcome this inexpensive new edition of the Benjamin Jowett translation as will all readers interested in Greek thought political theory and depictions of the ideal state, Few if any writers in history have made major contributions to as many fields of knowledge as Aristotle br p If there are two definitive features of ancient Greek civilization writes Hugh Lawson Tancred in his wide ranging Introduction they are articulacy and competition In the city states oratorical competence was an essential asset for politicians in the Assemblies and Councils and even for ordinary citizens in the courts of law In response the technique of rhetoric rapidly developed bringing virtuoso performances and a host of practical manuals for the layman Yet if many of these were little more than collections of debaters tricks the hugely influential i Art of Rhetoric i has a far deeper purpose It is here that Aristotle B C establishes the methods of informal reasoning provides the first aesthetic evaluation of prose style and offers detailed observations on character and the emotions Persuasiveness suggests Lawson Tancred becomes for the first time a systematic and even scientific exercise it can indeed be taught but only by a deep grasp of some of the most central features of human nature His fine translation makes freshly available an epoch making work of literary criticism p
