This version of Aristotle's Metaphysics presents the reader with what may be described as a Postscript to Natural Science. The translation from the Greek into English by Richard Hop aims to meet the needs of college and graduate students. It therefore renders the text into clear English, as accurately as possible, idea by idea rather than sentence by sentence or word by word. The glossary entitled "Analytical Index of Technical Terms," contains selected Greek terms listed by numbers corresponding to the numbers inserted into the text itself for purposes of ready reference. "The translator is to be commended for the scholarly and painstaking service which he has rendered to one of the great philosophic masterpieces of all times. . . . This work forms one of the foundation stones of learning." - Paul Helsel
