Overview

Aristotle's Theory of Substance: The Categories and Metaphysics Zeta by Michael V. Wedin

Michael Wedin argues against the prevailing notion that Aristotle's views on the nature of reality are fundamentally inconsistent. According to Wedin's new interpretation, the difference between the early theory of the Categories and the later theory of the Metaphysics reflects the fact that Aristotle is engaged in quite different projects in the two works—the earlier focusing on ontology, and the later on explanation.
