‎JAEGER, WERNER. - [TURNING ARISTOTLE UPSIDE DOWN]‎
‎Aristoteles. Grundlegung einer Geschichte seiner Entwicklung.‎

‎Berlin, Weidmannsche Buchhandlund, 1923. Lex 8vo. Orig. printed wrappers. Front wrapper and spine intact and in fine condition, back wrapper partly missing, -only ab. the middle third part is present. Uncut and internally nice and clean. A tear to front hinge and a few repairs to spine. (8), 438 pp. The not common first edition of Jaeger's seminal work, which fundamentally changed Aristotle scholarship in the 20th century.<br><br>With the publication of his first major work, "Aristoteles", Jaeger became an academic sensation, and no student of Aristotle can be unaware of the huge impact this highly untraditional work on the history of the development of Aristotle had within academic circles. <br><br>The work is epochal and revolutionary, and though it has been heavily criticized an scholded by especially later scholars, there can be no doubt that the book raises several now inevitable questions that previously had been almost completely neglected.<br><br>Being very thorough in his investigations and using everything he could find from the hand of Aristotle, Jaeger constructs a picture of Aristotle's development through time that was to revolutionize the study of Aristotle. By seeking parallels in works that are not internally consistent, Jaeger turns the hitherto established chronology of the writings of Aristotle upside down and demonstrates his increasing independence from Plato. After the publication of this work the genetic and developmental question came to dominate Aristotle scholarship, and nothing could be written about Aristotle without taking these questions into consideration. <br><br>Probably no other work can be said to have influenced the study of the greatest philosopher of all times to such a degree as this one.‎
