    Metaphysics is a major work of philosophy by the Classical Greek writer and philosopher Aristotle, considered one of his principal works and the first major work of philosophy within the field. The principal subject is the nature of being itself, and what can be asserted about any being by its nature, rather than any special qualities it has.   There is no “understanding” Aristotle’s Metaphysics, there are only many attempts at doing so.

This book is part of a larger study of the problem of the one and the many in Aristotle's Metaphysics. Although this portion can be read and understood on its own, some remarks about the contents of the two sister volumes will be by: 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.

This omission is all the more surprising because the Metaphysics is one of our principal sources for thinking that the problem is central and for the views of other /5(4). Evidently, if there is a One itself and this is a first principle, 'one' is being used in more than one sense; for otherwise the theory is impossible.

"When we wish to reduce substances to their principles, we state that lines come from the short and long (i.e. from a kind of small and great), and the plane from the broad and narrow, and body.

Book XII, on the other hand, is usually considered the culmination of Aristotle's work in metaphysics, and in it he offers his teleological system.

Part 1 " "'BEGINNING' means (1) that part of a thing from which one would start first, e.g a line or a road has a beginning in either of the contrary directions.

(2) That from which each thing would best be originated, e.g. even in learning we must sometimes begin not from the first point and the beginning of the subject, but from the point from which we should learn most easily. Chapter 1 Being (or 'is'?) is said in many ways (pollachôs legetai).

[This might mean: many different kinds of things are called beings. Or it might mean: 'being' is ambiguous, i.e., has many different senses.] 'Being' is said in a different way in each of the it used primarily of substances (ousiai), and the being of everything else (quantities, qualities, etc.) is dependent.

For the Forms are as many as, or not fewer than, the things in search of whose causes these thinkers were led to the Forms; because corresponding to each thing there is a synonymous entity apart from the substances (and in the case of non-substantial things there is a One over the Many 98), both in our everyday world and in the realm of eternal.
