Introducing Aristotle

A Graphic Guide

Rupert Woodfin and Judy Groves
AUD $12.99

A comprehensive introduction to this towering figure in the history of Western thought.

Aristotle was a foundational thinker in almost every field of inquiry: logic, metaphysics, rational psychology, political science, sociology, aesthetics, ethics and more. This book guides the reader through an explosion of theories, from the establishment of systematic logic to the earliest rules of science. Aristotle's authority extended beyond his own lifetime to influence Islamic philosophy and medieval scholasticism. For fifteen centuries he remained the paradigm of knowledge itself. But can Aristotelian realism still be used to underpin our conception of the world today?

This series of graphic guides covers every key thinker and topic in philosophy, psychology, science, politics, religion, cultural studies, linguistics and more. Written by experts and illustrated by leading graphic artists, there is no better way to acquaint yourself with the biggest and best ideas humanity has ever come up with.
