Translated by Rhys Roberts and Ingram Bywater Introduction by Edward P J Corbett, i The plot is the source and the soul of tragedy i br br In his near contemporary account of Greek tragedy Aristotle examines the dramatic elements of plot character language and spectacle that combine to produce pity and fear in the audience and asks why we derive pleasure from this apparently painful process Taking examples from the plays of Aeschylus Sophocles and Euripides The Poetics introduces into literary criticism such central concepts as i mimesis i imitation i hamartia i error and i katharsis i purification Aristotle explains how the most effective tragedies rely on complication and resolution recognition and reversals centring on characters of heroic stature idealized yet true to life One of the most powerful perceptive and influential works of criticism in Western literary history the i Poetics i has informed serious thinking about drama ever since br br Malcolm Heath s lucid English translation makes the i Poetics i fully accessible to the modern reader It is accompanied by an extended introduction which discusses the key concepts in detail and includes suggestions for further reading, i The soul is so to speak the first principle of living things We seek to contemplate and know its nature and substance i br br For the Pre Socratic philosophers the soul was the source of movement and sensation while for Plato it was the seat of being metaphysically distinct from the body that it was forced temporarily to inhabit Plato s student Aristotle was determined to test the truth of both these beliefs against the emerging sciences of logic and biology His examination of the huge variety of living organisms the enormous range of their behaviour their powers and their perceptual sophistication convinced him of the inadequacy both of a materialist reduction and of a Platonic sublimation of the soul In De Anima he sought to set out his theory of the soul as the ultimate reality of embodied form and produced both a masterpiece of philosophical insight and a psychology of perennially fascinating subtlety br br Hugh Lawson Tancred s masterly translation makes i De Anima i fully accessible to modern readers In his introduction he places Aristotle s theories at the heart of contemporary debates on the philosophy of life and being, i One swallow does not make a summer neither does one day Similarly neither can one day or a brief space of time make a man blessed and happy i br br In the i Nicomachean Ethics i Aristotle sets out to examine the nature of happiness He argues that happiness consists in activity of the soul in accordance with virtue for example with moral virtues such as courage generosity and justice and intellectual virtues such as knowledge wisdom and insight i The Ethics i also discusses the nature of practical reasoning the value and the objects of pleasure the different forms of friendship and the relationship between individual virtue society and the State Aristotle s work has had a profound and lasting influence on all subsequent Western thought about ethical matters br br J A K Thomson s translation has been revised by Hugh Tredennick and is accompanied by a new introduction by Jonathan Barnes This edition also includes an updated list for further reading and a new chronology of Aristotle s life and works br br Previously published as i Ethics i
