Editorial Reviews

Book Description

The notions of purpose, goal, end and function are used (and abused) in descriptions of a very wide range of human, animal and machine behaviour. Andrew Woodfield provides here a unified account of such teleological descriptions and explanations, their varieties, their logical structure and their proper uses.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
So you way before those 'self-help gurus' have been preaching about one's 'purpose' in life, the great Aristotle already marked that territory so to speak. Whenever life hits me hard I always go back to my 'roots' & that is philosophy. It would take a lifetime to know the ins & outs of Aristotle's great-maze-of-a-mind BUT it's worth taking trip. -MichaelAngela- Author of Beauty Matters The Moral Issues, M.A. Philosophy @authorofbeauty.
