Sintesi dell'editore

Aristotle (384-322 B.C.) was Plato's student, but revised his teacher's ideas to be more consistent with ordinary experience. He thought human beings are one with the rest of nature, yet set apart from it by their ability to reason. Aristotle systematized the laws of thought, gave a complete account of nature and God, and developed an attractive view of the good life and the good society. He also provided the first systematic expositions of physics, biology, psychology, and the standards of literature.

The Giants of Philosophy is a series of dramatic presentations, in understandable language, of the concerns, questions, interests, and overall world view of history's greatest philosophers. Special emphasis on clear and relevant explanations gives you a new arsenal of insights toward living a better life.

The First Humanist

If you could sum up Aristotle in three words, what would they be?

The First Humanist

What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

Hard to say. I guess it would be that Aristotle was the first major humanist. Not a wonderful thing, but it is interesting that he came up with ideas that are still held high in esteem today.

What does Charlton Heston bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Sometimes being able to listen helps with understanding, no other comments though.

If you could give Aristotle a new subtitle, what would it be?

The First Humanist.

Any additional comments?

You need to love philosophic ideas to really enjoy this. I simply listened to this for school purposes.
