About the Authors
  • In this book, Julie K. Ward examines Aristotle's thought regarding how language informs our views of what is real. First she places Aristotle's theory in its historical and philosophical contexts in relation to Plato and Speusippus. Ward then explores Aristotle's theory of language as it is deployed in several works, including Ethics, Topics, Physics, and Metaphysics, so as to consider its relation to dialectical practice and scientific explanation as Aristotle conceived it.

    • Provides conclusions for Aristotle's theory of predication
    • Suggests ways of relating Aristotle's theories of dialectic and science
    • Places Aristotle's theory in relation to Plato's earlier theory of naming

    Julie Ward's volume is a valuable study, on a subject that needs further inquiries. One cannot but be engaged with Ward's fine and thorough analysis of Aristotelian homonymy. --BMCR
