9780521714709: The Chain of Change: A Study of Aristotle's Physics VII (Cambridge Classical Studies)

The Chain of Change is the first full-scale philosophical commentary devoted to Aristotle's Physics VII, in which Aristotle argues for the existence of a first, unmoved cosmic mover. This study systematically considers the major issues of the book, and argues for the fundamental importance of Physics VII in our understanding of Aristotelian cosmology and natural science. Physics VII is extant in two versions, and therefore poses special editorial problems. For this reason one of the features of Dr. Wardy's study is the provision of an improved text and translation in both versions. The author's comprehensive comparison of their merits, philosophical and philological, has a significant bearing on our understanding of the nature and evolution of the Aristotelian corpus. The second part of the book is devoted to critical examination of the argument, including one of the most elaborate and challenging in the entire Aristotelian corpus. Throughout, the author concentrates on those points where Aristotle diverges most sharply and provocatively from contemporary presumptions in philosophy and natural science.

Book Description:

The Chain of Change, first published in 1990, is a philosophical commentary devoted to Aristotle's Physics VII, in which Aristotle argues for the existence of a first, unmoved cosmic mover. This study systematically considers the major issues of the book.

Review:

"Wardy makes his case well, and as he does so he sheds new light on many familiar Aristotelian theses....the book is an important contribution to an unjustly neglected area of Aristotelian studies, and is an example of the close and thoughtful reading of texts that marks the study of ancient philosophy at its best." Owen Goldin, Ancient Philosophy

"...a welcome addition to the scholarly literature on Aristotle. Not only does it illuminate a dark corner, it is a model of proper procedure for textual clarification and explanation." Robert G. Turnbull, Philosophy of Science
