  1. De Anima (Reeve Edition)

    Aristotle
    Translated, with Introduction and Notes, by C. D. C. Reeve

    De Anima (Reeve Edition)

    Series: The New Hackett Aristotle

    "This is C. D. C. Reeve's entirely new version of Aristotle's fascinating, and at the same time superbly difficult, text. The translation is faithful, concise, and extraordinarily thoughtful. Any student of the De Anima will no doubt greatly profit from it. Reeve's Introduction focuses on the place of the study of the soul in Aristotle's biology and—controversially—theology. With this he provides a refreshing and highly instructive counterpoint to an idea still very powerful in the secondary literature. This is the thought that the De Anima pertains to the province of 'the philosophy of mind.' Reeve shows that the De Anima is much more than this. A remarkable contribution." —Klaus Corcilius, University of California, Berkeley and The University of Tübingen

  2. Metaphysics (Reeve Edition)

    Aristotle
    Translated, with Introduction and Notes, by C. D. C. Reeve

    Metaphysics (Reeve Edition)

    Series: The New Hackett Aristotle

    "C. D. C. Reeve adds to his already remarkable series of translations of Plato and Aristotle another stellar accomplishment: a full translation of Aristotle’s daunting Metaphysics. He has managed to present Aristotle’s often ungainly Greek into perfectly flowing English syntax without sacrificing the core meaning of the text. Any translator of Aristotle will recognize what an impressive achievement this is. All readers will benefit from the over 1,600 explicative notes accompanying the translation: Reeve has a discerning eye for determining what requires amplification for the purposes of understanding and an admirable gift for saying just as much as needs to be said in order to achieve it." —Christopher Shields, George N. Shuster Professor of Philosophy, University of Notre Dame

  3. Nicomachean Ethics (Reeve Edition)

    Aristotle
    Translated, with Introduction and Notes, by C. D. C. Reeve

    Nicomachean Ethics (Reeve Edition)

    Series: The New Hackett Aristotle

    "C. D. C. Reeve's masterful new translation of Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics will become a classic: it is clear and readable; its interpretive implications are far-reaching; it is philosophically illuminating. Reeve's scholarly notes—with detailed textual cross-references to the rest of Aristotle's works—integrate the ethics with the metaphysics, the politics, and the philosophy of mind. The book is an invaluable resource, useful to students and scholars alike." —Amelie Rorty, Tufts University and Harvard Medical School

    "The Nicomachean Ethics remains the most compelling of all works on the good human life, and readers can now enjoy ready access to it through David Reeve's fluent new translation. Accompanied by illuminating commentary and an exceptionally rich index, the volume is an ideal companion for those aspiring to learn their way around this classic text." —David Sedley, The University of Cambridge

  4. Physics

    Aristotle
    Translated, with Introduction and Notes, by C. D. C. Reeve

    Physics

    Series: The New Hackett Aristotle

    The Physics is a foundational work of western philosophy, and the crucial one for understanding Aristotle's views on matter, form, essence, causation, movement, space, and time. This richly annotated, scrupulously accurate, and consistent translation makes it available to a contemporary English reader as no other does—in part because it fits together seamlessly with other closely associated works in the New Hackett Aristotle series, such as the Metaphysics, De Anima, and forthcoming De Caelo and On Coming to Be and Passing Away. Eventually the series will include all of Aristotle's works. Sequentially numbered endnotes provide the information most needed at each juncture, while a detailed Index of Terms indicates places where focused discussion of key notions occurs. An illuminating general Introduction describes the book that lies ahead, explaining what sort of work it is and what sorts of evidence it relies on.

  5. Politics: A New Translation

    Aristotle
    Translated, with Introduction and Notes, by C. D. C. Reeve

    Politics: A New Translation

    Series: The New Hackett Aristotle

    "David Reeve's new translation of the Politics is certain to become the primary and indispensable tool for anyone undertaking a careful study of Aristotle's great work. Newcomers to this treatise as well as advanced scholars will learn enormously from the Introduction, extensive notes, and detailed index."  —Richard Kraut, Northwestern University

  6. Rhetoric

    Aristotle
    Translated, with Introduction and Notes, by C. D. C. Reeve

    Rhetoric

    Series: The New Hackett Aristotle

    "The Rhetoric is, of course, a landmark in the history of rhetorical theory. It is also a major work of Aristotelian philosophy, which contains Aristotle's fullest discussion of the nature and value of dialectic, a pioneering treatment of non-conclusive but reputable argumentation and a wide-ranging examination of the emotions, among other things. Reeve's clear and accurate translation, with a meaty Introduction and copious notes, does justice to the Rhetoric in all its aspects as no English language translation has done before." James Allen, University of Toronto

    This new translation of Aristotle's Rhetoric, noteworthy for its consistency and accuracy, is the latest addition to the New Hackett Aristotle series. Fitting seamlessly with the others in the series, it enables Anglophone readers to read Aristotle’s works in a way previously impossible. Sequentially numbered endnotes provide the information most needed at each juncture, while a detailed Index of Terms guides the reader to places where focused discussion of key notions occurs.
