Description
Interviewer: "But some philosophers have been pretty skeptical about human pretensions to scientific knowledge, haven't they?"

Aristotle: "'Perhaps we know nothing at all?' 'All knowledge is subjective.' 'Science is a social construct.' Yes, I've heard that philosophers have said things like that. But it really is the most appalling nonsense. Ask your skeptical philosopher why, if he knows nothing, he turns left rather than right when he wants to go to the Academy. Make off with a subjectivist philosopher's wife and tell him that, from your viewpoint, she's not his wife at all."

Presented as a comfortable chat between Aristotle and a time-traveling interviewer, this compact little book imagines what it would be like to spend and hour or two with a founding figure of Western philosophy over a cup of tea or coffee. The entertaining conversation is purely fictional, yet solidly based on biographical facts.
