Outline Notes: Aristotle Intro, October 23, 2007, p. 1 Lecture 15: Aristotle Intro: Aristotle life and works Categories 1-5, Int . 9: CCR 645-670 Two apologies: a) It has been brought to my attention that the Timaeus selection in CCR begins on standard page 27, rather than on standard page 17, and that as a consequence the stuff that was presented in the lecture unfortunately had no basis in your reading, and worse yet, you had no reason to know the answer to the first multiple choice question. I recognize that, and will take care of that situation. b) I said in lecture last Tuesday that attendance at extra discussion sections replaces discussion absences (only). That’s not true. Students who attend extra discussions can count them against lecture absences also. When I get information about an additional attendance, I count it off against any absence. You can't get credit for more than the maximum number of attendances (as of today, that would be 22). Readings until Exam 2: *Today: CCR 656-670 *Thursday, October 25: CCR 671-693 *Next Tuesday (10/30): CCR 694-719 *November 1: Exam 2 Some good general books on Aristotle *Lear, Aristotle the Desire to Understand, 1988 *Ferguson, Aristotle, 1972 *Grene, Portrait of Aristotle, 1964 *If all else fails, Randall, Aristotle, 1960 Some More Recent Aristotle Books *Chris Shields, Aristotle , 2007 *Lloyd Gerson, Aristotle and Other Platonists , 2005 *J.
