  1. Michael Michael says:

    Anyone who has even the slightest interest in Philosophy has to of course read Aristotle. However, reading the Ethics, Logic, Poetics, Physics and Metaphysics are satisfying in their own right. Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics are probably the most insightful and useful reconstruction of human ethi

    Much harder for me to read than Plato was. Plato used a story format and addressed more interesting topics whereas Aristotle often feels like he talks more about semantics.

    Decent publication for someone who would like to have an overview of Aristotle's work, but I wouldn't recommend this to a classicist or a demanding reader.

    Read parts of “Parts of Animals”, book 5 of Physics, Alpha, Gamma, and Zeta of Metaphysics, books 1 & 2 of politics, and book 1 of NE. Not even a dint of the works by my dude but still a good time. Looking forward to finishing Politics and writing 60 pages about it hahaha

    OK, I'll confess. I'm not an Aristotle fan. I chose to read Nicomachean Ethics, Politics and Poetics because it was on The New Lifetime Reading Plan by Clifton Fadiman. Obviously, around 350 B.C., basic concepts regarding alternative governments and their variations had not been thought through too well. Arist
