Commentary on Aristotle's Physics

New Haven: Yale University Press, 1963. First edition in this translation. Softcover. Large octavo. XXXII, 599, [1]pp. Original printed wrappers over cloth. First complete English translation of one of the most important medieval texts in the philosophy and history of science. In spite of obvious differences between the thought of an ancient pagan philosopher and a Christian theologian of the late middle ages, it is generally admitted that Thomas Aquinas produced one of the best commentaries on Aristotle's "Physics." This work is also a clear presentation of the sort of cosmology from which men like Copernicus, Galileo, Kepler, and even Newton took their start in founding modern astronomy and physics. Spine of wrappers slightly age-toned. Price clipped on front flap. Wraps in overall good to good+, binding and interior in very good condition. vg. Item #31037
