This overview of Aristotle's philosophy strives for accessibility. While serious, sometimes profound ideas are discussed in simple, everyday terms, some passages are confusing or even amusing when they become more convoluted than the concepts they explain. Though the author stresses that Aristotle is understandable to everybody, the choice of Frederick Davidson as reader either acknowledges or assumes Aristotle appeals more to a select audience. Davidson has a wonderful voice. Far from common, it's a genuinely erudite English actor's voice. His sound is classy and classical. He does absolutely nothing wrong, yet the elite quality of his voice may not help "everybody" feel at home with philosophy. D.J. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 94]
