Abstract:

"This new English version of the Physics is the last contribution to the understanding of Greek thought of Richard Hope, long a teacher of philosophy at the University of Pittsburgh...This writing he had always seen as embodying many of Aristotle's most enduring insights. "In his translations, Hope attempted to have them make sense to the English reader, and above all to make philosophic sense to anyone trying to understand not only Aristotle but the world as well...[The present translation], presented in the form in which he left it, can stand as a monument to the thinking of a learned and penetrating philosophical mind."--John Herman Randall, Jr.
