For those of you who may be unaware of the Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews or who browse it intermittently, I direct your attention to John Bussanich’s review of Lloyd Gerson’s eminently important work, Aristotle and Other Platonists (Cornell University Press, 2005). Not only does Bussanich helpfully summarize and offer caveats to Gerson’s general argument, that Plato and Aristotle do not fundamentally differ in philosophical principles, but his review gives the reader both a peek into the current scholarship on these two classical philosophers and an introduction to the major philosophical issues that (despite Gerson’s coherent and primarily successful harmonization) seem to divide Aristotle and his Magister bonus.
