This new translation and commentaryMoreThe first two books of Aristotles On the Heavens (De Caelo) offers perspectives on the cosmology of a thinker whose ideas in this area were considered authoritative by many until the 17th century of our era.

This new translation and commentary provide the modern reader with the opportunity to appraise Aristotles ideas in relation to the cosmologies of his predecessors. While tied to the thinking of his day, Aristotle nevertheless succeeded in placing cosmology on a new footing- indeed, as the commentary in this volume shows, his use of mathematics-style demonstration, along with is appeal to observation, in avoiding more standard forms of argument, resulted in a methodology that often shares common ground with todays cosmologies.

Greek text with facing-page translation, introduction and commentary.
