    Meh. Dullsville, man. Dullsville. I would like to see the evidence for the oft-declared notion "Aristotle's works are just his students' notes compiled." I don't believe that idea. It's too verbose to be students' notes. If this is students' notes, it's mostly editorial additions, I say. I admit freely toward the end there was more professional skimming than reading, and perhaps you may say that mars if not outright disqualifies my commentary on Aristotle, but the vast majority of the works in h Meh.

Surely none of this is considered true or right or helpful today, surely. And I'm a classicist. I suppose you would read this for historical interest, like "what did people believe about the souls of animals before microwaves existed?" A non sequitur, sure, but this was not a life-helping experience.

    Tried to read and gave up like 85ish pages in. It's a great book if you're into either philosophical ramblings or outdated lessons in physics. The two volumes look pretty on my shelf though. You can use them like dictionaries. You can dip into them to feel smart but mainly keep them on the shelf. Tried to read and gave up like 85ish pages in.

    All the works of this arguably greatest thinker in Western history are concentrated here in one place as volumes 8 and 9 of the Britannica Great Books of the Western World. Apart from a brief biographical note, there is no editorial commentary of any kind; the reader can read the philosopher's words for himself and develop his own response. Only one of the works in this volume I found impenetrable without help: the logical treatise Prior Analytics.

To read that with comprehension I turned to an excellent guide: Robin Smith's Prior Analytics. Bring on volume 9!

    Reading this put a lot of other books into context for me. We've been talking about the same ideas since the beginning of time (no kidding!)... politics, money, education, home life, and invisible rings (really that is in here!! JRRT was not so original as was previous thought). Great reading to consider what you believe and why. Reading this put a lot of other books into context for me.
