Aristotle is often underrated in educational circles but the impact of his philosophy and his actions are evident in the schools and universities around us today. Aristotle developed the first proper university that had different departments and vast collections of texts and artefacts. His philosophy has also influenced the greatest minds since his time, from Aquinas to today's logicians, rationalists, and empiricists. The influence of his educational thinking and his philosophy in general helped underpin the Renaissance and the modern era. In a nutshell, Aristotle took our thinking and said, 'make it sharper.' Alexander Moseley offers a thorough and comprehensive overview of the works of Aristotle and explores the influence of his thought and writings and their impact on our education systems today.

Moseley presents a well organized synthesis of the works of Aristotle in this 21st volume of the Bloomsbury Library of Educational Thought. The author begins with Aristotle's early intellectual influences in education and in culture. Moseley organizes the works of Aristotle into applicable theory and explores the great philosopher's impact on various educational systems throughout history.
Dr Moseley's book provides a great help to scholars of education. He gives a thorough background in Aristotle's ethical and political theory to include the place of Aristotle's comments on education within his larger system. The analysis of the central sources on education is clear and Dr Moseley shows how it is relevant to contemporary issues. His account of Aristotle's legacy is well-worth knowing.
