Description - Galen: On Antecedent Causes by Galen

This new edition of a short but fascinating text by Galen on causal theory contains the first translation of it into any modern language, and the first philosophical commentary thereon. The commentary ranges widely in Galen's oeuvre and compares his views with those of other ancient theorists. The introduction deals in detail with Galen's life and work, with both the philosophical and medieval background to his causal theory, and with the history of the text itself.
