A revised edition of Taylor’s 1919 publication this is an excellent concise readable 111 pages overview of Aristotle’s thought which should greatly help the non specialist Taylor breaks Aristotle down into scientific method first philosophy physics and practical philosophy which includes not just ethics but a theory of the state There is also an introductory chapter on Aristotle’s life and worksI liked how Taylor showed Aristotle’s debt to his teacher and mentor Plato; regarding ‘nous’ or intuition Taylor remarks‘Aristotle holds that the knowledge of the principles of science is not itself science demonstrated knowledge but what he calls intelligence and we may call intellectual intuition Thus his doctrine is distinguished from empiricism the doctrine that universal principles are proved by particular facts‘Aristotle does little than repeat the Platonic view of the nature of science Science consists of deduction from universal principles which sensible experience “suggest” but into which as they are apprehended by purely intellectual inspection no sense data enters as constituents The only difference between Plato and his scholar lies in the clearness of intellectual vision which Plato shows when he expressly maintains in plain words that the universals of exact science are not “in” our sense perceptions and therefore to be extracted from them by a process of abstraction but “apart from” or “over” them and form an ideal system of interconnected concepts which the experiences of sense merely “imitate” or make approximations to’
