Aristotle is one of the most crucial figures in the history of Western thought, and his name and ideas continue to be invoked in a wide range of contemporary philosophical discussions. The Bloomsbury Companion to Aristotle brings together leading scholars from across the world and from a variety of philosophical traditions to survey the recent research on Aristotle's thought and its contributions to the full spectrum of philosophical enquiry, from logic to the natural sciences and psychology, from metaphysics to ethics, politics, and aesthetics. Further essays address aspects of the transmission, preservation, and elaboration of Aristotle's thought in subsequent phases of the history of philosophy (from the Judeo-Arabic reception to debates in Europe and North America), and look forward to potential future directions for the study of his thought.In addition, The Bloomsbury Companion to Aristotle includes an extensive range of essential pedagogic tools offering assistance to researchers working in the field, including a chronology of recent research, a glossary of key Aristotelian terms with Latin concordances and textual references, and a guide to further reading.

Readers will be especially helped by the essays on rhetoric, metaphysics (first philosophy), and ethics . There is a 35-page glossary of Aristotelian terms, very helpful for those entering into reading Aristotle. There is also an eight page chronology of recent research, four pages of resources including where to find Aristotle's Greek and English texts for free online.
Finally we have a companion to Aristotle that represents the diversity of contemporary approaches to his work, even to the extent of making accessible for the first time in English indispensable scholarship from Europe, that demonstrates the continuing relevance of this work, and that provides the necessary tools, especially in the form of an excellent bibliography and glossary, for further research. It is to this volume I will now direct my students as their first stop in the study of Aristotle.
Keenly responsive to the labors of thinking philosophically, rigorously argued, and illuminatingly structured, this volume is an invaluable contribution to the study of Aristotle. The index alone is indispensable reading for Aristotle scholars and historians of philosophy.
This new collection of essays features a number of European and Anglo-American authors who write in the Continental rather than the analytic tradition; some are not native English speakers (though their essays are translated into English here). These factors are what most distinguish this volume from those in the competing series.
