The Lost Second Book of Aristotle’s Poetics

Walter Watson

EUR 27,00
Disponible sous 6 jours Ajouter au panier
Here, Walter Watson offers a new interpretation of the lost second book of Aristotle’s Poetics. Based on Richard Jako’s philological reconstruction of the epitome, a summary first recovered in 1839 and hotly contested therafter, Watson mounts a compelling philosophical argument that places the statements of this summary of the Aristotelian text in their true context. Watson renders lucid and complete explanations of Aristotle’sideas about catharsis, comedy, and a summary account of the different types of poetry, ideas that influenced not only Cicero’stheory of the ridiculous, but also Freud’stheory of jokes, humour, and the comic.
Finally, more thn two millennia after it was first written, and after five hundred years of scrutiny, Aristotle’sPoetics is more complete than ever before. Here, at last, Aristotle’lost second book is found again. [Extrait de la quatrième de couverture]
