9780198240877: Metaphysics: Books Gamma, Delta, and Epsilon (Clarendon Aristotle Series) (Bks.4-6)

The books translated in this volume are fourth, fifth, and sixth in the traditional ordering of Aristotle's Metaphysics. The nature and metaphysics are discussed in G and E. A subtle examination of the principles of non-contradiction and excluded middle occupies the latter part of G. D is in the form of a philosophical lexicon. All three books contain important material on being, substance, "accident," unity, truth, cause, and other such concepts. The translation is very close to the Greek, as an aid to students who cannot check the English version against the original. It is followed by an interpretative and critical commentary. For this new edition, Kirwan has added a substantial section of further comment on several central issues, and considerably expanded the bibliography.

About the Author:

Christopher Kirwan has taught at the University of Oxford since 1959, and has served as Vice-Chairman of the General Board of the University from 1980-2. He edited by journal Analysis from 1976-87 and edited and contributed to Notes on Book Z of Aristotle's Metaphysics (Oxford, 1979). He was a Visiting Fellow at Princeton University from 1957-8.

Review:


From the reviews of the first edition: "The commentary...is both businesslike and thought-provoking, and Kirwan is pleasantly fertile in modern examples."--Mind


"Kirwan is always interesting, and his book will be quite indispensable for philosophers working on Aristotle."--Classical Review
