In Defence of History
In Defence of History
by Richard J. Evans
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent review from the modern historian point of view of the modern history, 10 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: In Defence of History (Paperback)
This is a book in defence of History and exactly because of that it concentrates more on the modernist aproaches to the subject than the classical ones but the good writing and the clear way in it was made make it an excellent approach not only to History itself, not only to the modern History method, but to the work of the historian in special and the method and aim of the one who studies History. Really worth the reading.

It's only bad that the editors didn't put more images on it but still it is an excellent buy and I don't regret it. It is practical and I really loved it. Thank you.

5.0 out of 5 stars As a student this is my first recommendation, 28 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book deserves the best recommendations not only for the translations used (most I believe are from the Oxford works on Aristotle, including the translation of De Anima of W.D. Ross,, etc.) but for the publication format itself. It isn't as heavy as the number of pages would sugest and for a student who needs to study most of the Aristotelian Philosophy it is a lot cheaper to use this edition then to buy most of them separately.

The book is simply organized without larger introductions wich I personally prefer because they tend to transform into critiques and analyses of the woks introduced and the organization of each work with a detailed index is enough for someone who wants to read Aristotle without any preconceived ideia of his Philosophy.

Besides, it's Aristotle. If you wanna know Philosophy, you have to go there.
