Aristotle A Very Short Introduction by Jonathan Barnes | table of contents

Remember when you were handed a tortuous primary text in your humanities course when you really needed a broad and suitably concise survey ? Well, this is the survey that such dreams are made of. In a mere hundred pages, Barnes expounds, criticizes and defends Aristotelian metaphysics, science and logic, devoting some space to aesthetics, ethics, and politics. Highly recommended overall. Another book in this series that I'd recommend is Wittgenstein by A. C. Grayling. Another readable survey: A Short History of Philosophy
by Robert C. Solomon, Kathleen M. Higgins.
