Aristotle's ethics by David Bostock ( Book )
13 editions published between 2000 and 2006 in English and held by 464 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Aristotle's Nichomachean Ethics is his most widely studied work, for much of what he has to say is still important for today's debate on the problems of ethics. In this new book, David Bostock presents a critical introduction to this great classic of moral philosophy, guiding the reader through explanations and evaluations of all the main themes of Aristotle's work." "This texts' arguments are summarized, analysed, and assessed succinctly. Each chapter ends with suggestions for further reading on the themes and ideas discussed within the chapter, and the book concludes with an evaluation of the Ethics as a whole. Bostock provides the ideal companion to study of this great work, helping the reader to engage with its ideas and arguments as living philosophy."--BOOK JACKET

Russell's logical atomism by David Bostock ( )
11 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"David Bostock presents a critical appraisal of Bertrand Russell's philosophy from 1900 to 1924--a period that is considered to be the most important in his career. Russell developed his theory of logic from 1900 to 1910, and over those years wrote the famous work Principia Mathematica with A. N. Whitehead. Bostock explores Russell's development of 'logical atomism', which applies this logic to problems in the theory of knowledge and in metaphysics, and was central to his philosophical work from 1910 to 1924. This book is the first to focus on this important period of Russell's development, examining the three key areas of logic and mathematics, knowledge, and metaphysics, and demonstrating the enduring value of his work in these areas."--Publisher's website
Metaphysics by Aristotle ( Book )
26 editions published between 1994 and 2003 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The books translated in this volume are seventh and eighth in the traditional ordering of Aristotle's Metaphysics. They are central to Aristotle's metaphysical system: in them he discusses the nature of perceptible 'substance' or reality. In particular, he compares the claims of matter and of form to be the basic reality of things, and he frequently contrasts his own view of form with the Platonic view. Several other topics are treated which are of central importance to his metaphysics, e.g. the notions of essence and definition, the status of universals, and the concept of a unity. David Bostock provides an authoritative guide to these difficult and important books, assuming no knowledge of Greek on the part of the reader. He offers a clear new translation that follows the original closely, and a thorough and careful philosophical commentary
