Coffee with Aristotle

Julian Barnes writes the foreword to Coffee with Aristotle, a new book by Jonathan Barnes, the noted Aristotle scholar ... and Julian's brother.

Book Description:

Not many people can claim to have invented a new science, but Aristotle invented two: zoology and logic. More than two millennia after his death, Aristotle’s thought still influences us. Here, over coffee (a drink Aristotle never tasted), he converses with refreshing and illuminating simplicity about everything from causation and deduction to the role of women and the wonders of the natural world in a pre-scientific age.
