      Another Audible free book from the "Channels" program and another slow day in the shop.Aristotle is responsible for the beginnings of scientific classifications of plants and animals. He is also known as the father of logic. He is also accidentally created metaphysics. When his works were being put together subjects were recorded as geology and physics. The section after physics was called in "after physics" or in Greek metaphysics. His writings and interest were well rounded and much more diver [...]

      Well, I can't say listening to this made me smarter This was more an overview of Aristotle's life than anything.

    3. Jim on said:

      I expected a quick biography of Aristotle & more about his many thoughts & contributions to the world. There was some personal stuff by Strathern traveling in modern Greece & the biography was longer than I expected, although it was good perspective. While Aristotle's contributions were covered, they were scattered, although again there was a lot of good perspective on how his works were used throughout history - mostly Christians painting themselves into a corner by making his works [...]

    4. Stinger on said:

      The concept for the basic structure of this book is inviting, giving in short order a synopsis of the life of Aristotle. However, the frequent insertion of the author's opinion prohibited my enjoyment of this read. Throughout the book Strathern reveals his bias against Aristotle's philosophy; one wonders why he wrote this in the first place if not perhaps to complete a part of his "90 Minutes" book series.

    5. Jimmy on said:

      A brief summary of Aristotle and goes over more of his biographical information than his beliefs in details—maybe it’s because I thought it was going to concentrate more on Aristotle ideas. In terms of the structure of the book, it seems to be rather all over the place. Today I learned that Aristotle had some issue of pride and didn’t always agree with Plato, his teacher. The most interesting part of the book for me was the chapter on Aristotle’s idea after him—from Aristotle’s influ [...]

    6. Maggie on said:

      fairly done with less personal opinion inserts (oh how paul strathern loves the term philistine, once in a while in legitimate identification and all other times as a throw away put-down of those he doesn't agree with.)error suspected when strathern discusses thomas kuhn's paradigm idea and connects it to relative knowledge or no-sure knowledge can be known b/c kuhn, himself, noted that that idea is not what he expressed in his seminal work the structure of scientific revolutions, 3rd edition (d [...]

    7. Anna on said:

      Expecting a straight overview of Aristotle's life and writings, I was treated to more of a commentary instead of history. The 3 timelines at the end were the most helpful and maybe would have been better off towards the beginning instead of the very end. In addition, there was a series of Aristotle's quotes from random pieces.I don't know if I was more annoyed by the obnoxious tone of the reader's voice or the author's extended harangue of his search for the "proper" birthplace of Aristotle whic [...]

    8. Guilherme Passos on said:

      Melhor livro dessa coleção até agora, pelo menos na parte biográfica. Não imaginava que Aristóteles era um playboy filhinho de médico que depois de umas amizades acabou se tornando um pensador que dá aulas, sensacional! Agora, a parte que fala sobre seu pensamento, como na maioria dos livros dessa coleção, é bem fraca.

    9. Alicia on said:

      A short summary of Aristotle. Good for someone like me since my eyes tend to glaze over when faced with too much philosophy. I mainly listened to this because it is short, I am behind in my reading challenge schedule, and to impress my brother who enjoys books such as these. :)

    10. Kari Olfert on said:

      Aristotle in 90 minutes is exactly that. We get an overview of his childhood, love life and writings with a few key quotes from his philosophies and it ends with a timeline before and after his life to showcase how ahead of his time a lot of his ideas were.

    11. Dennis on said:

      I felt like Strathern shares more about the historical life of Aristotle than what Aristotle actually wrote and philosophized about. But I learned quite a few new things.

    14. Ashley Adams on said:

      The philosophers 90 Minutes series is infinitely better than the Very Brief Introduction series, I cannot stress that enough.All said, this is a pretty basic chronology of Aristotle's life and the way Aristotelian thought became absorbed into western consciousness. Not the place to turn to for interpretation or critical inquiry into Aristotle's work, but a good primer.

    15. Sarah on said:

      Exactly what it says. Nice little way to feel like I'm keeping up with one of our more cultured library patrons over a couple lunch breaks. If you want serious delving into Aristotle, this is not where you go, but if you can't even remember the basics of Aristotle's philosophies, this is great for jogging the memory.

    16. Carol Last on said:

      Aprendí más acerca de la relación entre Aristóteles y Alejandro Magno que de filosofía. Creo que el apartado de citas tomadas de los textos de Aristóteles tiene potencial, me hubiera gustado que el autor las comentara. No estoy segura de si estos "90 minutos" valieron la pena.

    17. Rob on said:

      For the reader who knows little of Aristotle's life, ideas, and influence, this is a decent introduction. But it's pretty shallow on the ideas. For a better overview of his ideas, try Thomas Stackhouse's contribution to the Giants of Philosophy series.

    18. Joshua Lawson on said:

      An adequate introduction to the life and influence of Aristotle. Particularly valuable to me were a few insights I took away regarding the integration of Aristotelian logic into medieval Christian theology.

      Muito feliz de agora poder citar Aristóteles por ai. Nota 3"Tudo ficara bem, mas caso alguma coisa aconteça" Clássico Ari.

      Aristotle in Ninety Minutes by Paul StrathernA High Priest of…HappinessIt may seem preposterous to sum up Aristotle or any other major philosopher in ninety minutes. Perhaps it is. But for some people, including this reader it may be a way to approach a great mind. I have tried my hand with Aristotle; I think it was Metaphysics –which comes after Physics- when I was about eighteen or twenty.I found the treatise dry, difficult to approach and incomprehensible. The same thing happened with Kan [...]

    21. Jimmy on said:

      Aristotle first divided human knowledge into separate categories, so our understanding of the world became more systematic. The result was the modern world of science. Aristotle began by worshiping Plato, but soon he found the flaw in Plato's work. This may have separated them a bit. Aristotle was a great collector of manuscripts from around the world, so Plato called him "the reading shop." It has been said that everyone in the world is either a Platonist or an Aristotelian. Plato's approach to [...]

    22. Justin Tapp on said:

      This is another in the Strathern series on philosophers. I found this work to be more succinct than the one on Socrates. Strathern gets criticized for leaving too much out, but these books serve their purpose. For me, they give an overview of the philosopher's life, his context, and some of his contributions to later thought and even modern society before I read the subject's work.Aristotle was a polymath who studied under Plato and developed the formal discipline of logic. Christian apologetics [...]

    23. Judah on said:

      Aristotle in 90 Minutes describes the amazing life of philosopher Aristotle and his accomplishments, along with the impact he has on western civilization today. The book starts off with his time spent as a student under the wisdom of Plato, in his late teens. It then goes on about his mentoring of many people, Alexander the Great being one of the more memorable ones. The book talks about his time spent opening schools, time spent with students, and his later life and his death. I found the book [...]

    24. Marie on said:

      The only reason why I gave this book 2 stars instead of 1 is because I really was able to read it in 90 minutes as the title promises and it was a quick first acquaintance with Aristotle.I had a Philosophy exam a couple of weeks ago and I must admit that my college book explains so much more about the Greek philosopher in 20 pages than this book does in 87. Also, I feel like it wanders too much and focuses on his biography, while it misses out on his philosophy, which is, after all, the reason w [...]

    25. Jaime on said:

      I listened to the audiobook, a great way to go in my opinion. It was pleasant to listen to and easy to follow. I was hoping for more of his philosophies than his biography, but really it was great. Perhaps that would have been more difficult to listen to? I feel like I have a basic understanding of who Aristotle is, what his basic ideas revolved around and the influence of his philosophy. Loved the last bit of it where it discussed his influence and also gave some of his quotes. I will definitel [...]

    26. Kam on said:

      An all right beginning on Aristotle but:I'm finding that his writing isn't coherent all the time. He contradicts himself, or points don't quite follow other points. This is especially frustrating for me as I know relatively little (but my mind works relatively well :-))maybe because he had to condense it -- but I can't accept this because if you're trying to make something simpler, you should definitely be as clear as possible !

    27. Ci on said:

      I listened the audio version of this very brief book. It is surprisingly useful in distilling the essential biographic details of Aristotle and his major contributions (and distractions in some aspects of science and political philosophy) to modernity. It provides incentive for me to read his ethics and Thomas Aquinas in the formation of Christian orthodoxy through his combination of Aristotelian philosophy and Christian principle.

    28. Timothy McNeil on said:

      Strathern goes far too light on Aristotle's philosophy (especially in his giving the barest of lip-service to the Ethics), and still manages to insert himself into the narrative as a guy wandering around, looking for Ancient Stagira. The weakest of the 90 Minutes books I've seen to date (though this is only the 6th I've read), but it still manages to be somewhat informative.
