For readers who may be unfamiliar with the English edition of the Leob Classical Library, only the Introduction, footnotes, Arguments and comments in the volume "On the Heavens" are in English. Beginning on page 4 and continuing to the end of the volume the language used by the original author - in this case, Greek - is located on the left-hand page and professor Guthrie's superb translation in English is located on the right-hand page. The Greek-English comparison is enlightening.

If a reader chooses to discover the fundamental Aristotelian understanding that forms the underlying foundation of his "Physics", then "On the Heavens" (De caelo) is an indispensable read.

I have always enjoyed the Loeb Classical Library books and Aristotle's "On the Heavens" is no exception. As an astronomical historian, this is a great book as it demonstrates the beginnings of astronomical thought. Although a lot of what Aristotle says would later be proven incorrect, ideas had to start somewhere, and if you ignore what you know about astronomy, his explanations of what things are and why things happen are quite ingenious.

I'm giving this 5 stars for two reasons:

1) It has clear summaries for every single chapter, telling you what Aristotle says in the chapter and outlining the arguments he makes. This makes it great as a study aid.

2) I found the translation very readable, and liked it better than the Joachim translation, which is the translation that appears in "The Basic Works of Aristotle."
