This is an absolute genius of a book. The world is in a mess because of the wrong direction modern philosophy has taken starting with Occam,Descartes and going on to the crazy theories of Kant, Hegel, Hume, Locke. Feuerbach, Marx and most of the post modern madness. In Aristotle there is sanity and Adler explains why. If his teaching became standard in our modern universities the world would be a much happier and safer place.

One of the most essential introductions to Aristotle together with Olavo de Carvalho's "Aristotle in new perspective". Precise, written in Aristotelian logic manner.

Bought this one for my wife when she took a shine to looking into philosophy. Not a novel; you need to read this book when there are few distractions.

Philosophy made fun for anyone who wants to enjoy it! 7 July 2000
By Peter Dykhuis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is an absolutely great book. This is the type of book that justifies all of the fluff in the publishing world. This book is written in a way that anyone can not only understand but also enjoy.
This book is 190 pages (Bantam 1978). There are no dull chapters or useless ramblings. All of the chapters and portions build upon each other and grant a continuing greater understanding of Aristotle and philosophy as a whole.
The book can be read in its entirety, as I have done many times, or in pieces and morsels, as I have also done many times for papers and brainstorming.
A very worthwhile read and definite necessity for any balanced library.

An easy to understand summary of Aristotle's Philosophy 25 Oct. 2001
By "ospawno" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I am a firm believer that reading interpretations of philosophical writings is never a substitute for the actual writings. I read this book and gave it to my wife who did not have the benefit of studying Aristotle in a scholastic environment. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to understand what Aristotle is all about, but doesn't have the time to study all of his works.
In addition, the author has many reference notes that the reader can use to find the original writings to which the book refers. In many ways, the book acts like a good philosophy teacher. Much can be learned by reading the book, and the corresponding works of Aristotle as referenced in the notes.

Correction 14 Aug. 2001
By Stuart Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Please disregard the previous remork by "a reader" in San Jose. This books is NOT a "Christian spin" on Aristotle. Adler wrote this book a decade before his conversion to Christianity.

A Pleasurable Read 17 July 2000
By ray - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book makes Aristotle's teachings simple to comprehend and allows the reader to truly understand what the Greek thinker really thought. It was interesting to read Aristotle's ideas on how one should live life and that life should not be difficult if you live by his beliefs. I recommend this book to you.

The definitive summation of Aristotle's thought. 4 July 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
For anyone having difficulty reading the greatest philosopher
in Western history-"The master of all who know"-or for the expert who wants a review of Aristotle,
this book is a must. Adler is a great philosopher in his own right, and here he presents
his knowledge in full, representing Aristotle's thought as well as Aristotle himself could
explain it. A must read for all philosophers, beginners and scholars.
