I bought this book expecting to get know who Aristotle was, where he came from, etc.; typical biographical info., instead I got to know how he thought. The author does an amazing job of explaining Aristotle's philosophy. Anyone can read this book and come away with a better understanding of Aristotle, the University professor or the layperson.

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.)

Format: Paperback
The aim of this book is to provide a short, popular account of Aristotle's philosophy for those that are somewhat acquainted with the history of philosophy. I do recommend the book, but not without qualification. The author needlessly, and perhaps unfairly, attacks Aristotle quite often in the work, which is simply distracting. To the potential buyer: keep in mind that this work was written in 1915 and that the author's criticisms of Aristotle rely on a heavily Platonic bias.
