Editorial Reviews


"Scrupulous...masterful...[this] book deserves an honored place in the literature on Aristotle's metaphysics."--Ancient Philosophy

"Michael Wedin has written the equivalent for Aristotle of what biblical scholars would call a 'harmony of the gospels.' It is a wonderfully rich and argumentatively dense reconstruction of Aristotle's two most important treatises on substance, the Categories and Metaphysics Zeta, works that many of our most able Aristotle scholars have declared irreconcilable....Both the magisterial scope of this fine book and its rich detail are worthy of the great treatises it examines. Since Wedin works out his own positions with explicit and detailed reference to some of the most careful recent scholarship on these works, his book will no doubt be subjected to intense scrutiny and thorough debate. It deserves nothing less."--Journal of the History of Philosophy
