    Paperback ↠ Aristotle Detective PDF Ç aristotle epub, detective free, Aristotle Detective ePUBBut there is a corollary to your first hypothesis which leads to a interesting argument After all Eudoxia’s proof is only a support of your hypothesis not a demonstration of it It is absolute as it goes but if this prop was knocked out your hypothesis could still be true If we take it as true the corollary might be demonstrated If Philemon did not do it somebody of the class non Philemon did it Someone did kill Boutades Looked at objectively that is the interesting point Find out who did kill Boutades and prove that this person did it and your theorem stands proved It is open to you before the trial to investigate who did kill Boutades as well as to find witnesses to prove Philemon’s absenceDoes this type of dialogue appeal to you as a reader? A pseudo Aristotelian dialogue that demands precision and intellectual clarity? If so this is the book

    Paperback ↠ Aristotle Detective PDF Ç aristotle epub, detective free, Aristotle Detective ePUB332 BC The young Athenian Stephanos is trying to clear his cousin Philemon of a murder accusation Since Philemon has been exiled for manslaughter Stephanos feels he wasn't even in Athens at the time of the murder He consults Aristotle who philosophically and logically tries to figure out the solution For the most part Stephanos does the running around and interviewing while the philosopher offers advice and deductions A red clay pot an heirloom from the victim's house and a piece of horn from a Cretan bow found outside are the first clues After red herrings attempted murder of Stephanos and a trip by Aristotle to Corinth an ingenious solution to the mystery is found and brought out in a courtroom drama Ms Doody wrote this novel in 1978 long before the current trend of mysteries set in ancient Greece I felt this is one of the better in the genre Ms Doody also set me down right in the middle of Greek culture of those times Workings of the Greek

    Paperback ↠ Aristotle Detective PDF Ç aristotle epub, detective free, Aristotle Detective ePUBI've stumbled upon this book by chance as when making an online purchase I was offered the second volume of this series As I do not like to read series starting by the middle namely in this genre as though not always the older cases are needed to understand the background of characters there are some mentions from time to time that help to understand of the stories It happened to me once while reading Steven Saylor's A Murder on the Apian Way and since then I always try to read a series in its straight order However although I quite liked the said book I feared this historical mystery wouldn't match my expectations as another previous book Nick Drake's Nefertiti was a disappointment In this book we follow Stephanos who tries to defend his cousin Philemon from the murder of an important figure in the city of Athens Their defence is focused around the fact that Philemon

    Paperback ↠ Aristotle Detective PDF Ç aristotle epub, detective free, Aristotle Detective ePUBARISTOTLE DETECTIVE is a fun straightforward mystery novel set in Athens during the reign of Alexander of Macedonia Margaret Doody appropriates Aristotle arguably the second greatest of all philosophers as her leading character in this detective series In this the inaugural story he enables a former student to clear the name of his cousin who is falsely accused of murder The plot is fairly predictable but yet good enough that I will read further in this series

    Paperback ↠ Aristotle Detective PDF Ç aristotle epub, detective free, Aristotle Detective ePUBHaving missed the vast majority of references and allusions suitable appreciation of this book is precluded by my ignorance of ancient Greece One could spend hours looking up terms and names if only those for different kinds of pots let alone what it would take to check the myriad of myths and legends It speaks for the book that this ignorance is not an impediment to enjoyment I should read it again with a classical encyclopedia at hand
