[note: this is NOT the Prometheus edition, the NuVision edition nor the Digiread edition and is not full of typos!. It was first published in Sept. 2012 so any earlier review is not of this edition, which is an accurate and well presented edition of the translation by W.D.Ross, generally recognised as an excellent English translation]
Translated by Sir David Ross, one time White's Professor of Moral Philosophy and Vice-Chancellor of Oxford University.
This volume contains that part of the philosophy of Aristotle which is concerned with "first philosophy", the search for true wisdom, at the core of which Aristotle places the study of being (now known as ontology). It consist of 14 books (corresponding to scrolls in the original) in one paperback.
The excellent translation by W.D. Ross has been re-typeset for this edition using LaTeX, in Patatino 10 point typeface. A detailed contents list (with titles for each Book and Part) and an extended index have been added to help the reader locate the parts most relevant to his studies. Page headers and footers have been carefully designed to assist the reader in finding his way around the work.
