璀璨的现代文明发源于古希腊文明。早在两千多年前,古希腊文明就建立了数学、哲学、逻辑学、自然科学以及政治学的系统理论。这些理论一直以来都影响并推动着西方文明的发展。亚里士多德是古希腊文明的奠基者之一,作为哲学、逻辑学和政治学的鼻祖,他的至高无上的学术权威在欧洲一直持续到中世纪。《形而上学》是亚里士多德在哲学方面的最为重要的著作,规范了哲学的研究方向和研究方法,奠定了现代哲学的基础。读懂《形而上学》是理解古希腊哲学乃至古希腊文明的必经之路。 然而,一直以来,哲学深奥的概念和晦涩的表述都让人望而生畏。本书一改以往晦涩难懂的哲学表述风格,采用意译的方式,以生动活泼、通俗易懂的词句,再加上浅显的注解,让读者在轻松愉悦的阅读体验中快速深入的领略古希腊哲学大师的伟大智慧和大家风采。本书翻译原文是W. D. Ross的英译本《Aristotle Metaphysics》。
