Publisher's Summary

Aristotle’s Organon comprises six key essays on logic, initially collected by Theophrastus, his successor as head of the Peripatetic school, and given its final form by Andronicus some three centuries later. The six essays are: Categories, On Interpretation, Prior Analytics, Posterior Analytics, Topics and On Sophistical Refutations. One of the principal topics of Aristotle’s focus is syllogism, in which two premises (one major, one minor) lead to a conclusion. This features in Prior Analytics and On Interpretation. 

In the other essays, Aristotle considers the structure of being, knowledge and argument. The Organon collection has remained a core text in the study of logic and prompted many commentaries by philosophers down the ages following their translation from Greek into Latin in the 12th century. The translations here are by E. M Edghill, A. J. Jenkinson, G. R. G Mure and W. A. Pickard-Cambridge.

Audible, please fix the chapter names

Amazing book, but poor organization. it's so hard to navigate when chapters don't have names and when the book has 5 books inside.

Head of Western Science

be ready for an in depth look at the syllogism.

Through this reading, you will not only gain appreciation for Aristotle as a leading thinker over the last 2000 years, but you will learn how to be extremely logical, through an in depth examination of the building block of western linear thought, the syllogism

disappointing can't choose individual books of A

disappointing can't choose individual books of A; just huge list of "chapters" so its hell trying to navigate. since its philosophy and not a story audible should adapt these types of books for professional referencing
