PHIL 7788 Aristotle's Metaphysics (Spring: 3 )

Course Description

The course will be devoted to one of the rarest, most excellent, and most difficult philosophical texts ever written. Aristotle's Metaphysics presents a profound and profoundly influential answer to the question What is being? But even apart from his answer, the Philosopher reveals his greatness as a thinker by the way he approaches the question of being: what does the question pre-suppose? What does it imply for nature, knowledge and language? How can the question of being be answered when all we experience are individual beings?
