Also Rhymes With Aristotle
Subscribe to: Post Comments (Atom)
An exhilarating book, both brilliant and profound. Annabel Lyon’s spare, fluid, utterly convincing prose pulls us headlong into Aristotle’s original mind. Only Lyon’s great-hearted intelligence could have imagined and achieved the brave ambition of this book. Vital, ferocious and true, The Golden Mean is an oracular vision of the past made present.
--Marina Endicott, author of Good to a Fault
In Lyon’s clever hands, more than two thousand years of difference are made to disappear and Aristotle feels as real and accessible as the man next door. With this powerful, readable act of the imagination, Annabel Lyon proves that she can go anywhere it pleases her to go.
Good one! Two things:
- I loved reading The Golden Mean and have given it as a gift often.
- Meet many philosophers here, also courtesy of Monty Pyton...
Thanks, Gary! I'll look forward to checking our your link.
