Seventeen articles center on the question of whether the collected fragments of Aristotle's student Theophrastus add up to a whole way of looking at his work in philosophy and science. Debating whether Theophrastus was a systematic thinker who applied coherence and consistency to a growing body of knowledge, or a problem-oriented thinker who presaged the dissolution of Peripatetic thought, the essays discuss his views on logic, physics, biology, ethics, politics, rhetoric, and music. Also treated are comparisons of Theophrastus with contemporaries of his such as Zeno, Epicurus, Xenocrates, Polemon, Eudemus, and Strato. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
