Modern readers can now appreciate the wisdom of the world's greatest thinkers. Renowned philosophy professor Joe Sachs presents an accessible and faithful translation; an inspirational addition to the Focus Philosophical Library. Other Joe Sachs titles available from Focus Publishing:
Plato: Gorgias and Aristotle: Rhetoric
Socrates and The Sophists"
"Sachs's translations of Aristotle are truly exemplary. They combine a rare sensitivity to Aristotle's use of the Greek language with an English style that is straightforward and imaginative. But what makes Sachs's translations even more noteworthy is their attunement to the thought that is indicated by Aristotle's words, an attunement born of a profound awareness of the untranslatability of this thought into modern philosophical concepts. For anyone seriously interested in Aristotle's philosophy, Sachs's translations are indispensable."
--Burt Hopkins, Seattle University
"Sachs's translations are unequaled in making accessible to Greekless readers an Aristotle undistorted by the influence of Latin. In addition, his helpful glossaries not only explain his own translational choices, but also inform readers of common alternatives, thereby enabling them to cope with the secondary literature. His are my translations of choice, for both introductory and advanced courses."
