[a] [30] The study of Truth is in one sense difficult, in another easy. This is shown by the fact that whereas no one person can obtain an adequate grasp of it, we cannot all fail in the attempt; [b] [1] each thinker makes some statement about the natural world, and as an individual contributes little or nothing to the inquiry; but a combination of all conjectures results in something. Aristotles' 'Metaphysics' is one of the most important texts in Ancient Philosophy. This GuideBook looks at the Metaphysics thematically and takes the student through the main arguments found in the text. The book introduces and assesses Aristotle's life and the background to the Metaphysics, the ideas and text of the Metaphysics and Aristotle's philosophical legacy.

Main. Here is Aristotle's argument for the existence of God, from chapters 6 to 10 of book 12 of the Metaphysics.. In chapter 6, Aristotle argues that there must be some eternal and imperishable substance, otherwise all substance would be perishable, and . This argument has been criticized at almost every point. This chapter defends Aristotle's argument from these criticisms. Drawing on the account of form and matter in Aristotle's Metaphysics, it argues that “function” does not mean purpose but rather a way of functioning — how a thing does what it does.

It is because of Aristotle that metaphysics became known as metaphysics. Literally, it means after physics and was called that because Aristotle wrote the work after he wrote the Physics. It is in this book that Aristotle expands on the metaphysical work he has already done in the Categories. Metaphysics as a branch of philosophy—concerning the most fundamental level of reality—originated with Aristotle, who produced a work that is known as the simplicityhsd.comr, Aristotle coined.
