On ideas Aristotle's criticism of Plato's Theory of forms

The Peri ideōn (On ideas) is the only work in which Aristotle systematically sets out and criticizes arguments for the existence of Platonic forms. Gail Fine presents the first full-length treatment in English of this work, asking how, and how well, and why and with what justification he favors an alternative metaphysical scheme. She also examines the significance of the Peri ideōn for some central questions about Plato's theory of forms--whether, for example, there are forms corresponding to every property or only to some, then to which ones; whether forms are universals, particulars, or both; and whether they are meanings, properties, or both. In addition to discussing the Peri ideōn and its sources in Plato's dialogues, Fine also provides a general discussion of Plato's theory of forms, and of our evidence about the date, scope, and aims of the Peri ideōn. --From publisher's description.

Gail Fine presents the first full-length treatment in English of this important but neglected work.

While she pays careful attention to the details of the text, she also relates it to contemporary philosophical concerns. The book will be valuable for anyone interested in metaphysics ancient or modern."
