Overview

Though primarily known as a philosopher, Aristotle made substantial contributions to nearly every academic subject existing in his time. Over 2,400 years after his death, many of his teachings still lay the foundation for modern schools of thought. His zoological notes and observations were so far ahead of their time that some of them were not confirmed until the nineteenth century. An exceptional student of Plato, Aristotle was trained by the best educator the world had to offer; his own insights pushed away from Plato’s archetypes towards an experiential understanding of the world around him, giving birth to Aristotelian logic. This understanding led to some of history’s most profound observations of the way the world works. Aristotle achieved a deeper understanding of reality than countless philosophers before and after his time.

Included in the Select Works of Aristotle (40 vols.) are many of his surviving texts covering a wide range of subjects. Most of the works Aristotle prepared for publication no longer exist, but the remains have become almost essential to Western thought. The texts contained in this collection are likely his notes from lectures, with a few more polished works. Some of these texts are also believed to have been written by other scholars at the school where Aristotle taught. Together, these texts offer valuable insight from one of the greatest minds to ever live. Students of philosophy, Greek, anthropology, politics, the Greco-Roman world, and the sciences will enjoy these fascinating works.

This collection contains the complete texts in their Loeb Classical Library editions. Each volume is included in its original Greek with an English translation for easy side-by-side comparison. Logos’ language tools help you to go deeper into the Greek texts and explore Aristotle’s fascinating language. Use the dictionary lookup tool to examine difficult Greek words and find every occurrence in your library. There’s never been a better way for students of history, medicine, culture, and Greek and Latin literature to absorb these intriguing works.

Aristotle: The Poetics. “Longinus”: On the Sublime. Demetrius: On Style: Greek Text

  • Authors: Aristotle, Pseudo-Longinus, and Demetrius of Phalerum
  • Translators: W. Hamilton Fyfe and W. Rhys Roberts
  • Series: Loeb Classical Library
  • Publisher: Harvard University Press
  • Publication Date: 1932
  • Pages: 250

This volume contains The Poetics by Aristotle, On the Sublime, which is often attributed to Dionysius of Halicarnassus or Longinus, and On Style, which is attributed to Demetrius of Phalerum.

Pseudo-Longinus is the name contemporary scholarship gives to the author of On the Sublime. While early manuscripts list Longinus as the author, scholars find the work contradictory to Longinus’ known works and believe the attribution was a mistake. It has also been argued that the author was Dionysius of Halicarnassus, though the date of publication discredits that possibility as well.

Demetrius of Phalerum (c. 350–280 BC) was an Athenian orator and student of Theophrastus’. History credits him as the writer of On Style, though scholarship suggests he was likely not the author.

About Aristotle

Aristotle (384–322 BC) was a Greek philosopher who studied a broad range of subjects, including physics, metaphysics, poetry, theater, music, logic, rhetoric, linguistics, politics, government, ethics, biology, and zoology. He was a student of Plato’s and a teacher of Alexander the Great. His works provided the first formal study of logic, and his philosophy is still widely studied today. Nearly all of the works he prepared for publication were lost, but substantial notes and fragments have survived for over 2,000 years.
