This is the 26th volume in the Clarendon Aristotle Series. This volume provides a rigorous translation of Book Lambda (XII) of Aristotle's Metaphysics and a detailed philosophical commentary. Lambda is an outline for a much more extended and wide-ranging work in metaphysics, or in what Aristotle calls 'first philosophy', and contains the fullest exposition there is of Aristotle's extraordinary conception of God. Its accounts of the principles of substance, the nature of God, and of Aristotle's cosmology were highly influential throughout the Middle Ages among philosophers and theologians writing in Arabic and Latin, and on into the Renaissance. Aimed at professional scholars and graduate students, the commentary on each chapter or pair of chapters is preceded by a Prologue, which sets the scene for Aristotle's often very compressed discussion, and explores the general issues raised by that discussion. The Introduction discusses the place of Lambda in the Metaphysics as a whole, and offers and a solution to the problem of the unity of Aristotle's project in the book.
