Philosophy, Medieval -- Sources

Vintage from the 1960s

 

Aristotle is on his deathbed surrounded by his disciples. He periodically sniffs at an apple in his hand in order to sustain his failing breath while urging his followers toward philosophy that will reject this world and lead them to salvation. The Aristotle of The Apple wants at least two points clear: the soul is immortal and the world is not eternal. The book might well be called, "The Recantation of Aristotle." This English translation is part of a series of "Medieval Philosophical Texts in Translation."
