Aristotle's Metaphysics, Bks. Γ, Δ, and Ε

Western philosophy might well be a series of footnotes to Plato, but these footnotes mostly took the form and used the terminology provided by Aristotle.  This reading group will aim to achieve a thorough grounding in Aristotelian thought, hoping thereby to gain deeper insight into everything that has followed.

Our tentative reading schedule is as follows:

Wk. 1. Categories and On Interpretation
Wk. 2. Prior Analytics
Wk. 3. Posterior Analytics
Wk. 4. Topics (Bks. I-IV)
Wk. 5. Topics (Bks. V-VIII)

Wk. 12. Metaphysics (Bks. Γ, Δ, and Ε [IV-VI])
Wk. 13. Metaphysics (Bks. Ζ, Η, and Θ [VII-IX])
Wk. 14. Metaphysics (Bks. Ι and Κ [X & XI])
Wk. 15. Metaphysics (Bks. Λ, Μ, and Ν [XII-XIV])
Wk. 16. On the Heavens (Bk. I; Bk. 2, Chs. 13-14; Bks. III & IV)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
