“Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human existence” – attributed to Aristotle
Along with Plato and Socrates, Aristotle (384-322 B.C.) is one of the triumvirate of philosophers responsible for the establishment of Western philosophy as it exists today. Socrates, Plato and Aristotle were among the first to refine philosophical thought, and Socrates is credited with devising the Socratic Method as a way to argue and debate points rationally. Still, Aristotle was very much his own philosopher. Though he studied at Plato’s famous academy, he was not hesitant to counter or criticize Plato’s philosophical stances on certain issues.
In addition to writing about rhetoric, politics, and reason, Aristotle was very much interested in metaphysics and spirituality. Still, Aristotle was the most renowned Ancient Greek philosopher for nearly 2,000 years because of his work on words. Rhetoric was his preeminent treatise on the art of persuasion, and Aristotle is widely credited with being the forbearer of the study of the art of rhetoric.
This edition of Aristotle’s On Interpretation is specially formatted with a Table of Contents and is illustrated with pictures of famous Greek philosophers.
