- DescriptionThis is a concise, accessible and student-friendly introduction to a key text in Ancient Philosophy. 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.

Continuum Reader's Guides are clear, concise and accessible introductions to key texts in literature and philosophy.
