A classic book, that is absolutely brutal to read. As a philosophy major I read it for school. I read a lot of dense books and I cannot imagine anyone enjoying reading this book.

It does have some classic ideas, like 'turtles all the way down,' prime mover stuff. It seems like a good translation though, with some extremely helpful introductions /5(65).

'Metaphysics as a Guide to Morals' is as the title suggests. It is metaphysical in spirit and philosophical in style. The subject is one of many of Iris Murdoch's themes. Mostly she likes to help us find meaning in our lives by elevating our moral sensibility.

She does that quite well. However, her style is not for everyone as it is heavy to read/5(21). Part 1 " "'BEGINNING' means (1) that part of a thing from which one would start first, e.g a line or a road has a beginning in either of the contrary directions.

(2) That from which each thing would best be originated, e.g. even in learning we must sometimes begin not from the first point and the beginning of the subject, but from the point from which we should learn most easily.

Part 1 " "WE must, with a view to the science which we are seeking, first recount the subjects that should be first discussed. These include both the other opinions that some have held on the first principles, and any point besides these that happens to have been overlooked.

For those who wish to get clear of difficulties it is advantageous to discuss the difficulties well; for the subsequent. Part 1 " "THERE are several senses in which a thing may be said to 'be', as we pointed out previously in our book on the various senses of words;' for in one sense the 'being' meant is 'what a thing is' or a 'this', and in another sense it means a quality or quantity or one of the other things that are predicated as these are.

While 'being' has all these senses, obviously that which 'is. Part 1 " "THERE is a science which investigates being as being and the attributes which belong to this in virtue of its own nature.

Now this is not the same as any of the so-called special sciences; for none of these others treats universally of being as being. They cut off a part of being and investigate the attribute of this part; this is what the mathematical sciences for instance do. Part 1 " "WE must reckon up the results arising from what has been said, and compute the sum of them, and put the finishing touch to our inquiry.

We have said that the causes, principles, and elements of substances are the object of our search. And some substances are recognized by every one, but some have been advocated by particular schools.

Those generally recognized are the natural. Proteus studies main strategies devised by Western philosophy in representing time in cosmology.

It aims at modifying current metaphysics and its relationship with cosmology in the light of recent scientific debates in quantum gravity and quantum cosmology, thereby boosting a new research field in history and philosophy of cosmology.

Metaphysics (Greek: τὰ μετὰ τὰ φυσικά; Latin: Metaphysica; lit: "the beyond the physical") is one of the principal works of Aristotle and the first major work of the branch of philosophy with the same name. The principal subject is "being qua being," or being insofar as it is being. It examines what can be asserted about any being insofar as it is and not because of any.
