Editorial Reviews

'As an ensemble piece this volume is outstanding, and no one with even a mild interest in Aristotle's De Anima will want to be without it. The individual pieces are without exception worthwhile and interesting, and some of them are exceptionally good. The whole, however, and what it achievesis greater than the parts considered individually ... the lively and engaging consideration of new ideas and new directions found throughout this large and important collection shows ... that scholarship on the De Anima is more alive than it has been in some time.'Kurt Pritzl, The Catholic University of America, Review of Metaphysics, June 1994
