Aristotle’s Topics Aristotle ’s Topics is a work that teaches us how to argue. It is divided into eight books. These books teach you what argument is, strategies of argument, rules of argument and what argument is good for. This book is a treatise on dialectical argument, a practice perhaps as old as human language, systemized for the first time by Aristotle. This seminal text offers many important insights into his conception of logic, his development of the notion of the predicables, and his ideas on the method of philosophical inquiry itself/5. People would know a lot more, and know a lot more quickly if all books were written as clearly as Robin Smith writes. His version of Aristotle's Topics covers only books I and VIII. But Smith makes clear what Topics is all about and why it is so valuable today.5/5(2). Buy Books and CD-ROMs: Help: Topics By Aristotle. Commentary: A few comments have been posted about Topics.
