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. 14. Metaphysics (Bks. Ι and Κ [X & XI])
Wk. 15. Metaphysics (Bks. Λ, Μ, and Ν [XII-XIV])
