Editorial Reviews


"...this work...offers a series of sturdy discussions of the individual senses. It will be of use primarily to specialists on Aristotle's psychology and biology, and is thus best suited for academic libraries supporting graduate programs in philosophy or classics. Graduate students, faculty, and researchers." Choice

"Aristotle on the Sense Organs contributes to a better understanding of Aristotle's often enigmatic treatment of sense perception, and will doubtless inspire further research." Joan M. Franks, O.P., Classical World

"Aristotle on the Sense-Organs is a valuable contribution to the field. The book is well written and well documented. Johansen demonstrates an ability to convey difficult positions with great clarity and frequently illustrates the issues with illuminating analogies and examples. I would recommend the work to advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and scholars." Scott M. Rubarth, Bryn Mawr Classical Review

"...excellent study of Aristotle's account of the sense-organs..." Helen S. Lang, Ancient Philosophy

"...for those who are well acquainted with these texts, this book has plenty to offer. Johansen's work on Aristotle's neglected notion of a medium of sense-perception is comprehensive, original, and important. It ought to receive considerable attention in years to come." The Philosophical Review

Book Description

This book is the first detailed study of Aristotle's theory of the sense-organs. It looks at all of the five sense-organs and shows how Aristotle's views about them follow from his views about their function in perception. The book also shows how Aristotle's explanation of why we have sense-organs is fundamentally different from that of modern science. The book should appeal to readers specifically interested in Aristotle's philosophy of mind and biology as well as to those generally interested in sense-perception.
