One and Many in Aristotle's Metaphysics: Books Alpha to Delta by Edward Halper
Book DescriptionEdward Halper's three volume One and Many in Aristotle's 'Metaphysics' contends that Aristotle argues for his central metaphysical doctrines by showing that they alone resolve various versions of what is known as "the problem of the one and the many." The present volume, Alpha-Delta, argues that these books constitute the first stage of Aristotle's inquiry, his case for the existence of metaphysics. Halper shows that the possibility of metaphysics turns on its having a subject matter with a sufficient degree of unity to be known by one science. Although books Alpha-Delta address the problem that occupied Aristotle's predecessors, they also prepare the way for-and are consistent with-the second stage, the inquiry into principles in the central books. Along the way Halper argues for unique interpretations of "being qua being," the source of the aporiai, the method of "saving the phenomena," "said in many ways," the principle of non-contradiction, and the significance of book Delta.

Aristotle's 'Metaphysics', Hardback (July 2012)
"Aristotle's Metaphysics" is an extremely rich and important philosophical work, unique in that it is an inquiry devoted to discovering a doctrine, rather than a treatise that defends a doctrine. This title presents an introduction to the text, offering guidance on: philosophical context; key themes; reading the text; and, reception and influence.

The problem of the one and the many is central to ancient Greek philosophy, but surprisingly little attention has been paid to Aristotle's treatment of it in the Metaphysics. "The Central Books of the Metaphysics" are widely recognised as the most difficult portion of a most difficult work. This title aims to examine the "Central Books".
