Now that it is page flip-enabled it is navigable and worth the purchase.

It is difficult to navigate the book. If you want to find a particular chapter in a sub-book, say, Posterior Analytics II chapter 8, it is difficult to get there.

Also, if you search the books for a term like "induction" there is no way to know which book, sub-book or chapter you are in. It would be nice if the top of the pages displayed which book or sub-book you're in.

I studied philosophy in a French speaking Institute in Europe. These two volumes came in very handy. The first question that may come to mind for those shopping for Aristotle is whether it's necessary to purchase the "Complete Works" and not just a volume of Major Works. In fact, it's not necessary- you'll get so much enrichment from even one major work of The Philosopher, especially with the aid of a competent professor. However, the complete works will ensure you that you have everything, and provide a good deal more reading enjoyment (even Aristotle's final will and testament is printed in Vol. II).

Aside from that, the translations contained in these works are considered the best available in English (and perhaps any) language other than the original Greek. To testify to this fact, some of my native French professors would occassionally ask to borrow my volumes to make photocopies of certain passages (or more), telling me that they felt the English translations were far better done than those in their native tounge! (And we know how much the French care for their native tounge!)

All in all, excellent books and money well spent.

These two volumes are must-have if you have any interest in Aristotle.

Masterpiece. Father of philosophy showing the world how to live, and yet here we are... dying... destroying... overpopulating is suffocation... what a true plague we are.

This man was the cure. Too bad no one wants to take it.

What can one say, Aristotle is awesome and the books are beautifully bound.
