The works of Aristotle on biological matters include a record of his observations contained in several books. This volume contains the "Parts", "Movement" and "Progression" while there are also volumes on "History" and "Generation" of animals. These works are first and foremost works of philosophy. They are at the center of Aristotle's thought -- comprising almost one third of his work that has survived. If you attempt to view these works as scientific treatises on biology, zoology, or anatomy b ...more

The lion's share (pun intended) of this volume is taken up by Aristotle's treatise, Parts of Animals.

In Aristotle's view, the parts of each animal work together for the greatest good of the organism and they are organized purposefully by nature in view of that end. While this view may strike modern readers as a b ...more
