Editorial Reviews


"Tony Roark's Aristotle on Time is an excellent book-resourceful, powerfully argued, and pleasing to read. The hylomorphic analysis of time it defends is new and challenging. Everyone interested in Aristotle's theoretical philosophy-indeed, everyone interested in the metaphysics of time-should read it."
--C.D.C. Reeve, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

"...The great strength of Roark's book is its nuanced attentiveness to the way Aristotle did philosophy: Roark does not employ hylomorphism merely as a heuristic device, asking us to imagine time, analogically, as though it were a combination of matter and form. Rather, he elegantly shows that time, for Aristotle, like individual substances, really is "a variety of hylomorphic compound" (1)... the book teems with an impressive array of textual engagement..."
--Julie E. Ponesse, Journal of the History of Philosophy

Book Description

Aristotle developed an account of the nature of time that, whilst also inspired by Plato, is thoroughly bound up with Aristotle's sophisticated analyses of motion and perception. Tony Roark's unique interpretation of Aristotle's temporal theory will appeal to those interested in Aristotle, ancient philosophy and the philosophy of time.

Format: Hardcover
This is an excellent scholarly study, much needed for its correction of the here-to-fore dominant Sorabji reading. Clear, well-written, authoritative. Invaluable for scholars of both Aristotle and time.
