2 TELFORD, Kenneth A. ARISTOTLE Commentary on Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics. Second Edition.
Institute of Global Cultural Studies, Binghamton University, Binghamton, NY, 1999, ISBN:1883058570 
TELFORD, Kenneth A. Commentary on Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics. Translated by Kenneth A. Telford. (Binghamton, NY): Institute of Global Cultural Studies, Binghamton University, (2001). Second Edition. Pp. (4),iii-xxviii,1-391,(3). 8vo, illustrated orange card covers with white spine. "Telford's translations and commentaries on Greek philosophy form a rare and significantreassessment of ancient thought. For his discoveries, about Greek language generally, and Greek philosophers specifically, are so basic and so import ant as to change drastically the signficance of almost everything they said. The discoveries were in two disciplines, Greek linguistics and philosophci or scientific procedure. Until both could be understood by one man, theirimpacts upon each other would never be noticed. For Telford discovered tha t greek writings have been obscured and confused by translators and scholars projecting onto Greek language and writings, precisely the reductive way of thinking that their philosophies were designed to correct. The Greeks well understood the dependency of all science on procedure, while today few are even aware of its relevance, much less its nature. It took centuries forthem to grasp procedure completely, that it is far more important than the scientific conclusions it makes possible. The understanding of procedure i s not only their greatest contribution, but that from which modern science can most sensibly profit. Aristotle completed the search by finally grasping the basis of procedure, wha tmakes its variation possible, and why every aspect of our formulation and establishment of fact is dependent upon it. By avoidance of the pitfalls of translation, and by noting Aristotle's own guidance to the subtleties of his argument, Telford has made the long lost Greek insight into procedure available to the profit of our own science." - from the rear cover.
