Aristotle's De Anima: A Critical Commentary

Front Cover
Cambridge University Press, Sep 24, 2007 - Philosophy - 598 pages
Aristotle's De anima is the first systematic philosophical account of the soul, which serves to explain the functioning of all mortal living things. In his commentary, Ronald Polansky argues that the work is far more structured and systematic than previously supposed. He contends that Aristotle seeks a comprehensive understanding of the soul and its faculties.
