i The soul is so to speak the first principle of living things We seek to contemplate and know its nature and substance i br br For the Pre Socratic philosophers the soul was the source of movement and sensation while for Plato it was the seat of being metaphysically distinct from the body that it was forced temporarily to inhabit Plato s student Aristotle was determined to test the truth of both these beliefs against the emerging sciences of logic and biology His examination of the huge variety of living organisms the enormous range of their behaviour their powers and their perceptual sophistication convinced him of the inadequacy both of a materialist reduction and of a Platonic sublimation of the soul In De Anima he sought to set out his theory of the soul as the ultimate reality of embodied form and produced both a masterpiece of philosophical insight and a psychology of perennially fascinating subtlety br br Hugh Lawson Tancred s masterly translation makes i De Anima i fully accessible to modern readers In his introduction he places Aristotle s theories at the heart of contemporary debates on the philosophy of life and being, i The plot is the source and the soul of tragedy i br br In his near contemporary account of Greek tragedy Aristotle examines the dramatic elements of plot character language and spectacle that combine to produce pity and fear in the audience and asks why we derive pleasure from this apparently painful process Taking examples from the plays of Aeschylus Sophocles and Euripides The Poetics introduces into literary criticism such central concepts as i mimesis i imitation i hamartia i error and i katharsis i purification Aristotle explains how the most effective tragedies rely on complication and resolution recognition and reversals centring on characters of heroic stature idealized yet true to life One of the most powerful perceptive and influential works of criticism in Western literary history the i Poetics i has informed serious thinking about drama ever since br br Malcolm Heath s lucid English translation makes the i Poetics i fully accessible to the modern reader It is accompanied by an extended introduction which discusses the key concepts in detail and includes suggestions for further reading, The Oxford Translation of Aristotle was originally published in volumes between amp It is universally recognized as the standard English version of Aristotle This revised edition contains the substance of the original translation slightly emended in light of recent scholarship three of the original versions have been replaced by new translations and a new and enlarged selection of Fragments has been added The aim of the translation remains the same to make the surviving works of Aristotle readily accessible to English speaking readers, Complete texts br i Physics i tr R P Hardie amp R K Gaye br i On Generation amp Corruption i tr Harold H Joachim br i On the Soul i tr J A Smith br i Metaphysics i tr W D Ross br i Nichomachean Ethics i tr W D Ross br i Politics i tr Benjamin Jowett br i Poetics i tr Ingram Bywater br Texts partly reproduced br i Organon i logical treatises i Categories i i On Interpretation i i Prior i amp i Posterior Analytics i i Topics i amp i On Sophistical Refutations i br i On the Heavens i br i The Short Physical Treatises i natural treatises i On Memory i i On Dreams i amp i On Prophesying by Dreams i br i The History of Animals i br i On The Parts of Animals i br i On The Generation of Animals i br i Rhetoric i br Generally accepted texts omitted entirely br i Meteorology i br i On the Progression of Animals i br i Constitution of Athens i br i Eudemian Ethics i
