Pavel Gregoric presents a detailed investigation into the Aristotelian concept of the common sense, which was introduced to explain complex perceptual operations that cannot be explained in terms of the five senses taken individually. Such operations include, for example, perceiving that the same object is white and sweet, or knowing that one's senses are inactive. Aristotle on the Common Sense will be of considerable interest to students and scholars of ancient philosophy andclassics, as well as those working in the history of psychology.
