Thomas Taylor's much-loved translations have been magnificently issued by the Prometheus Trust, and we here offer Aristotle's 'On the Soul'. This work makes up the bulk of this volume, but included with it are several shorter works, a couple of which touch upon mystical - occult themes:
- On Dreams
- On Divination by Sleep
- Concerning Sense and Sensibles
- On Memory and Reminiscence
- On the Common Motion of Animals
- On the Generation of Animals
- On Length and Shortness of Life
- On Youth and Old Age, Life and Death
- On Respiration
The production values are high, the typesetting and layout are elegant and easy to read, and the overall effect is impressive, making these books welcome additions to the reader's library. This is Volume V of the Prometheus Trust's 'Works of Aristotle', which is also Vol XXIII of their Thomas Taylor Series.
