Summary Read First Chapter image missing

"I like both the variety of topics treated and the generally sophisticated level at which they are discussed. There is no 'party' line here; just a group of scholars setting out their thoughts on various aspects of Aristotelian logic, metaphysics, and psychology. They show sound awareness of the current literature on the topic in question, treat the texts of Aristotle with understanding, and often come up with interpretations which succeed either in furthering our understanding or in provoking the reader to further thought on a given matter." -- T. M. Robinson, University of Toronto

"This books gives both Aristotle scholars and persons teaching Greek Philosophy (especially Aristotle) a good look at some recent and useful interpretative literature. The issues covered in the book are important and well handled. Despite being a set of independently written essays, there is considerable unity both implicit and explicit.

"There is little available which exhibits the convergence of the relatively new insights in this book, e.g., the materials on genus/species and the categories, those on the subject/ substrate distinction, and the work on thought of Wedin and Driscoll." -- Robert G. Turnbull, The Ohio State University
