This book is a detailed study of Aristotle's theory of the sense organs. It looks at all five sense organs and shows how Aristotle's views about them follow from his views about their function in perception. The book also shows how Aristotle's explanation of why we have sense organs is fundamentally different from that of modern science. The book should appeal to readers specifically interested in Aristotle's philosophy of mind and biology as well as to those generally interested in sense perception. The only study available on Aristotle's theory of the sense-organs A contribution to a famous modern debate about the credibility of Aristotle's philosophy of mind A contribution to recent debates about the relationship between Aristotle's psychology and biologyContentsIntroduction1.
