Taylor presents a searching analysis of Aristotle's thought, including classification of the sciences; formal logic; theory of knowledge; matter and form; the four causes; God; physics; biology; sensation; ethics; theory of the state; the fine arts. He also considers Aristotle's provincialism, errors regarding the nervous system and astronomy, and defense of slavery.

This is a book on an intellectual giant by an intellectual midget. The author seems totally unable to grasp the works of the great philosopher and seems to think that this is the fault of Aristotle rather than his own failing. He does not have a grasp even on such things as biographical facts which are common knowledge. If one wants to read a book written by an author who is full of himself, this is the one. If one wants an understanding of the philosophy of Aristotle, avoid this book like the plague.
