    A very thorough and intense book

    This work by Helen Lang covers Aristotles Physics very well and is very helpful for those who are philosophy majors, or beyond. It is not for the beginning philosopher or for those those who are just getting their feet wet in the field. In order to fully enjoy this book you must have a working knowledge of ancient Greek language and be able to translate it to English. It would also be very helpful to have several of Aristotles books such as the Physics, Metaphysics, and the De Anima at hand as Helen Lang refers the reader to those texts very frequently. I am a graduate student in philosophy and therefore find this book very thorough but intense. This book is a review of Aristotles Physics, Metaphysics, and DeAnima from the author and Medieval philosophers Magnus, St. Thomas, Buridan, and Duns Scotus. All in all a very good review of Aristotles works.
