Julie K. Ward examines Aristotle's thought regarding how language informs our views of what is real. First she places Aristotle's theory in its historical and philosophical contexts in relation to Plato and Speusippus. Ward then explores Aristotle's theory of language as it is deployed in several works, including Ethics, Topics, Physics, and Metaphysics, so as to consider its relation to dialectical practice and scientific explanation as Aristotle conceived it.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Review of the hardback: 'In view of the conflicting accounts of homonymy and pros hen predication in recent literature, Aristotle on Homonymy makes a welcome contribution by offering a maximally inclusive and comprehensive account of both. Ward builds on the strengths and weaknesses of earlier accounts to offer her alternative picture of core-related homonymy. It is one that is well worth the attention from scholars that it will no doubt receive.' POLIS: The Journal for the Society of Greek Political Thought
Julie Ward's volume is a valuable study, on a subject that needs further inquiries. One cannot but be engaged with Ward's fine and thorough analysis of Aristotelian homonymy. --BMCR
