Available for the first time in paperback, this volume contains text with translation of De Motu Animalium, Aristotle's attempt to lay the groundwork for a general theory of the explanation of animal activity, along with commentary and interpretive essays on the work.
"In virtue of its text alone, this book represents a major advance; and the essays, which range far beyond the text . . ., are considerable works of philosophical interpretation in their own right. Anyone interested in Aristotle will want to own this book: it will be conned, discussed, and valued, for years to come."--Jonathan Barnes, Greece and Rome
"An achievement that deserves warm thanks and congratulation."--John Ackrill, Philosophical Review
