In this lecture/discussion video from his Spring 2013 Introduction to Philosophy class at Marist College, Dr. Gregory B. Sadler examines some of the main ideas from book 1 of Aristotle's work the "Topics," which is concerned with the practice of dialectic.

He then briefly looks at definition, property, genus, and accidents.
