9780199244416: Unity, Identity and Explanation in Aristotle's Metaphysics

Discussing Aristotle's theory of the unity and identity of substances--a topic that remains at the center of metaphysical inquiry--this volume presents fourteen essays by leading figures in the fields of ancient philosophy and contemporary metaphysics. The contributors examine the nature of essences, how they differ from other components of substance, and how they are related to these other components.
