    About "Aristotle John H. Freese"

    1. Aristotle John H. Freese

      Greece Arabic Bulgarian Russian Alternate European spelling Aristoteles Aristotle 384 322 B.C numbers among the greatest philosophers of all time Judged solely in terms of his philosophical influence, only Plato is his peer Aristotle s works shaped centuries of philosophy from Late Antiquity through the Renaissance, and even today continue to be studied with keen, non antiquarian interest A prodigious researcher and writer, Aristotle left a great body of work, perhaps numbering as many as two hundred treatises, from which approximately thirty one survive His extant writings span a wide range of disciplines, from logic, metaphysics and philosophy of mind, through ethics, political theory, aesthetics and rhetoric, and into such primarily non philosophical fields as empirical biology, where he excelled at detailed plant and animal observation and taxonomy In all these areas, Aristotle s theories have provided illumination, met with resistance, sparked debate, and generally stimulated the sustained interest of an abiding readership.Because of its wide range and its remoteness in time, Aristotle s philosophy defies easy encapsulation The long history of interpretation and appropriation of Aristotelian texts and themes spanning over two millennia and comprising philosophers working within a variety of religious and secular traditions has rendered even basic points of interpretation controversial The set of entries on Aristotle in this site addresses this situation by proceeding in three tiers First, the present, general entry offers a brief account of Aristotle s life and characterizes his central philosophical commitments, highlighting his most distinctive methods and most influential achievements Second are General Topics which offer detailed introductions to the main areas of Aristotle s philosophical activity Finally, there follow Special Topics which investigate in greater detail narrowly focused issues, especially those of central concern in recent Aristotelian scholarship

    1. Aristotle defines Unmercifully And The Art of Rhetoric is no exception Aristotle disdained the sophist tradition of ancient Greece as much as Plato, but he also understood that rhetoric was a popular study of the day and it became another discipline he sought to master With a scientific eye and a mind toward philosophical value, Aristotle studied rhetoric as the power to observe the persuasiveness of which any particular matter admits pg 74 Ch 1.2 Rhetoric, when used appropriately, becomes a too [...]


    2. Not Aristotle s clearest or best organized work, but still part of the core curriculum of a liberal education.Why read Aristotle today Because he is one of the greatest minds in Western history, and such a person s well considered thoughts are inherently worth reading, if anything is.In addition, this book was deliberately aimed at those seeking to play an active role in a democratic society, to help them fulfill their function as citizens of a free society We in the West imagine ourselves mostl [...]


    3. You may never have read anything by Aristotle but if you ve ever taken a college writing course, you ve had him as your teacher The Art of Rhetoric did so much to define how subsequent generations, and civilizations, regarded the task of crafting persuasive language that it can truly be regarded as a founding text Methodically, Aristotle sets forth his sense of how the writer s handling of character and emotion contributes to success in rhetorical terms His insights regarding style and compositi [...]

    6. I m sure it s excellent, necessary, brilliantly designed, etc But so is a sewer system, and you don t want to spend too much time there either.



    7. The first book of Aristotle s highly taxonomical Rhetoric opens with a parsing of dialectic and rhetoric He sets up the latter as an art of persuasion related to but nevertheless distinguishable from the former After exploring the usefulness of syllogisms and enthymemes for both arts, Aristotle sets out his three basic categories of rhetorical discourse deliberative, judicial or forensic , and epideictic He spends the rest of the first book exploring topics related to the Greek topos, for place [...]


    8. This book is obviously a classic to the field of rhetoric It also contains what is essentially the first treatise on human psychology, in addition to systematically analyzing the art of persuasion.I have never read any other editions of this book, but I would recommend this edition to everyone who wants to read it George Kennedy s translation and his commentary are incredibly helpful, even amusing at times His sheer knowledge of Aristotle and this work he must have spent decades on it is stagger [...]

    10. I need an Idiot s Guide type book to help me with this one because this is just not sinking in Perhaps I need to reread it ehh I m not really a fan of rhetoric to begin with but this is certainly the book for orators, politicians, and lawyers to be Proof, proof, proof, make sure you can back up what you say, but when you don t have proof, at least say it with style and panache, that s half the battle An interesting read during election season One of the most interesting moments in this book is w [...]


    11. A translation is mainly an analogue to another text This edition presents a direct analogue that, to the layman, doesn t arouse any suspicions of misrepresentation in the text, and sustaining that particular suspension of disbelief is the measure of any translator s work I was totally content with this specific publication, but my interests were to read it once and be done with it This is an unglamorous edition and I wouldn t give it to your daughter s boyfriend for Christmas As a speechwriter, [...]


    12. While this is a book about rhetoric the broad definition that is used by Aristotle allows for excursions into philosophy, government, history, ethics, and literature Thus when discussing the proper organization of a speech Aristotle draws on literary examples from Homer and Herodotus to Sophocles No one can deny the strength of Antigone s argument when she says, But when mother and father have gone to Hades there is no brother who can be born again p 271 The work is difficult for Aristotle as he [...]


    13. There is a lot of good stuff here obviously it s Aristotle, man and it almost feels wrong not giving this 5 stars, but alasI just didn t find all of it very interesting I struggled to finish this, mostly because there were some great points on rhetoric surrounded by mountains of definitions that don t really seem to define rhetoric as it is today I m sure there are some modern texts that get at the same ideas in a modern context but we all owe a lot of that to Aristotle.Anyway, a good book tha [...]


    14. I cleared my one star rating for being a purely subjective impression as a college freshman Never have I read a unpersuasive and engaging treatment of the art of persuasion Perhaps I would have found it so with a better translation Someday I may pick up a Sachs translation and give it another go.


    15. Don t throw things at me.When I trudged through the dull translation of a section that proclaimed no value to a type of oration that I had just that evening used to great effect in a public political speech to a small audience, perhaps the years have been unkind, but I knew this wasn t going to be of great use to me Times change, and sophistry is a fact Wishing it away changes nothing.


    16. I am glad to be reminded of this wonderful book, although I read it some time ago It is effectively practical advice in nature which perhaps I did not completely appreciate at the time Perhaps it is time to read it again.


    17. Some of this book reads like a manual for living with what seem to be the simplest instructions imaginable Wake up, lift the cover, put your feet on the floor, stand up, go to the bathroom, etc Yet when one thinks about this being some of the earliest writings in recorded history, this instruction manual in how to be persuasive in speech and in writing states exactly what we teach our university students today And therein lies the simplicity that belies its brilliance This is my first cover to c [...]


    18. Aristotle is one of those guys that you know is a seminal influence on the whole of civilization, and yet seems to have gotten there by saying all the obvious things Somebody had to do it The man is clearly brilliant, but not quite congenial to modern taste, if I m any judge Case in point a treatise on rhetoric that is, the art of speaking well should not, I submit, be impossibly labored, irritatingly imprecise in terminology, and totally unmemorable, and yet this seems to be Ahem enthymemes are [...]


    19. Argument ForensicsThe work is a bit disorganized, and you pile between the points in a way that make it difficult to follow.But it is excellent with an introduction from the creator of the work on rhetoric, the book has been widely used in teaching communications, but the ideas here give a good insight into the origin of rhetoric and argumentation technique I give the book a 4 star rating, because i think there is something to be learned, witch is not given in other books on the subject The lack [...]


    20. Sweet natured through their not having yet observed much wickedness, and credulous through their not yet having been many times deceived, and optimistic because they have not frequently met with failure And for the most part they live in hope for hope is of the future and remembrance of the past, and for the young the future is long and the past short for on one s first day one can remember nothing but hope for everything And they are easily deceived for the reason given that they easily hope.


    21. We are in 322 BC, Aristotle is compiling all he knows about human to human communications rhetoric Even after than 2000 years reading it in 2017 , seems that he is still mostly RIGHT Diverging bad rhetoric , he should be spending time working on his physics because he was mostly WRONG on that book 340 BC Maybe this means that our intellectual tools were quite enough to understand human motivations but quite insufficient to understand nature advanced technology needed Just guessing after boredo [...]


    22. Aristotle s work is very difficult to understand but this work is very important in explaining how people should represent themselves through their words I found this book to be beneficial during my class but I feel reading this book without any external guidance is difficult and it is hard to grasp the entire meaning of the text.


    23. Such a pity that my ability to easily understand Aristotle has come to me late in life Such a blessing that now that I m old, I finally am able to easily understand Aristotle This book on Rhetoric is on the money, and I strongly recommend it, especially for any who do public speaking.


    24. This is the kind of book that should be read simply because so many other books are based on it s principles Informative and not too difficult to understand.


    25. Still a classic Clearly translated Still a classic Too bad all speakers don t follow his advise Combine these elements and you will do well.
