The value of Randall's "little book" lies in the complete rehabilitation of Aristotle as a uniquely original encyclopedic thinker and multidisciplinary scientist whose concepts, hypotheses, and ideas are more than relevant to modern pursuit of knowledge and modern society, and even to the modern thought.

John Herman Randall was a naturalist influenced by John Dewey, and wrote about Aristotle as a naturalist also.

This little book attempts to set forth what one man has found to be the significance for the present day of the thought of the second of the two major philosophers our so-called "Western" civilization has managed to produce. In the English-speaking world we have had in our generation the chance to learn from some of the most distinguished scholars in the long attempt to elucidate the text of Aristotle.

Professor Randall describes his book as a philosopher’s delineation of Aristotle. he is led to formulate two sets of distinctions: the one set appropriate.

  • This set of animal books is hilarious. I bought it for my husband because we both work in a bookstore and had never known Aristotle wrote an animal book. I thought it was a novel idea and thought it would be interesting reading. It is just hilarious. We have a weird sense of humor though. We will sit there and read it out loud to each other and crack up. It's not meant to be funny, of course. Maybe it's the wording or the translation or weird ideas/incorrect science, but it's pretty funny. Not really useful as a scientific study. More for historical sake. Did you know, for example, dogs suffer from three diseases? They are rabies, dog strangles and foot ill. Yes, this is the kind of thing you will learn from Aristotle's animal books.

  • As for the Greek, Aristotle is The Philosopher; the translation is typical of the Loeb series; reliable if not particularly brilliant. However, it is inexcusable to not fully include the universally employed Bekker line numbers in the margins; this makes finding texts difficult. Rather, the text provides non-universal paragraph divisions. Hopefully Loeb will rectify this in future printings.

  • For some reason, the sleeve was a bit damaged. but other then that, the content of this book is marvelous! with side by side translation from origional writings, and simplified short summaries or notes.

    Definitely a worthy book in anyones library.

  • Essential reading I would say for evryone who wants to get a rough idea of what Aristotle was all about, and what his main areas of study and influence were. The section on practical philosophy should be "essential reading" fo any new politician - since it raises questions like "who is the government for" - and what do we want the government to be doing on our behalf. This book was an invaluable resource for my own talks and essays on Aristotle.

  • For readers who may be unfamiliar with the English edition of the Leob Classical Library, only the Introduction, footnotes, Arguments and comments in the volume "On the Heavens" are in English. Beginning on page 4 and continuing to the end of the volume the language used by the original author - in this case, Greek - is located on the left-hand page and professor Guthrie's superb translation in English is located on the right-hand page. The Greek-English comparison is enlightening.

    If a reader chooses to discover the fundamental Aristotelian understanding that forms the underlying foundation of his "Physics", then "On the Heavens" (De caelo) is an indispensable read.

  • excellent translation. The greek text next to the english text is very useful

  • I am not a philosopher, but I am a Classical scholar. I think that having read much of Aristotle in Greek compensates for my ignorance of the subsequent history of philosophy.
    I know of no other book on Aristotle that approaches the concision, insightfulness and clarity of Randall's. (Oretga y Gasset's observation, "clarity is a form of courtesy that the philosopher owes," is at least as true of expositors of philosophy as of philosophers.)
    Randall has done a great service for everyone who wants to understand the basic approach and ideas of the man who is without doubt the most influential philosopher who ever lived.
    He is especially helpful in elucidating Aristotle's four aitia and explaining why the translation that is usually used for them - "causes" - is misleading. He is also correct to emphasize the fundamental difference between Aristotle's Final aition and Plato's. However, in doing so, he states (pages 228-9) that for Aristotle, the Final aition is never identical with the Efficient aition. That is incorrect. (See Aristotle's Physics 198a.)

  • A great companion to Aristotle's works.
