The Great Books – vol. 7 – Aristotle – part 1 – FINISHED – Organon, Physics, Metaphysics, etc.

Finally! I finished this volume! All 726 pages. Aristotle’s “Organon” (his books on Logic), his Physical treatises (“Physics”, “Metaphysics”, etc.), along with some other lesser-known works. He hates infinite regresses, is always talking about “movement” as the prime principle, and has the Law of Noncontradiction as his bedrock idea. There are, of course, some contradictions here and there. But, I also saw a few things that reminded me of other philosophers who came later, like Kant, and Alfred North Whitehead.
