Abstract:

"Adler traces 'in the simplest language and with occasional modern analogues, the logic and growth of Aristotle's basic doctrines.'" Publ Wkly "Aristotle taught logic to Alexander the Great and, by virtue of his philosophical works, to every philosopher since, from Marcus Aurelius, to Thomas Aquinas, to Mortimer J. Adler. Now Aler instructs the world in the 'uncommon common sense' of Aristotelian logic, presenting Aristotle's understandings in a current, delightfully lucid way ... Adler offers us a unique path to personal insights and understanding of intangibles, such as the difference between wants and needs, the proper way to pursue happiness, and the right plan for a good life."
