Easy Ideas Made into Hard Truths

Aristotle propounds simple ways of thought so as to prove we know very little. Besides some mistaken concept about geometry, he is spot on in prioritizing learning and health for a good life.

Explaining the Basics

Aristotle single establishes the basis of ethics and the workings of the world with insane detail and prevalence to modern day even though it was written 2000+ yrs ago.

Poorly done

Whoever scanned the 1911 edition to create this electronic version did a very poor job. It's supposedly part of the google books project, so likely someone at Google screwed up. Looks like some of the chapter numbering got lost. The text might be intact, but you'll sometimes feel like you're suddenly going from, say, chapter 8 to chapter 11. I don't have the original 1911 edition, so it's hard to say whether any of the text is actually missing. It seems to track (roughly) with the recent Bartlett and Collins translation. So maybe it is all here. But still, this is by no means an authoritative edition. Aristotle deserves better. And for that matter, so does J.A. Smith.
