In this, second, part of series of podcasts on Aristotle’s metaphysics we proceed to explore book gamma of Metaphysics. It is a crucial treatise for understanding, not only Aristotle’s philosophy, but also it serves as a window in the world quite different than ours and notion of science diametrically opposed to what we today denote by this word.
This is introductory podcast in the series dealing with Aristotle's Metaphysics through close reading of it's fourth book (gamma). The aim is to show how ancient philosophy dealt with most immediate reality disclosed to us in experience, and how it proves to be utterly abundant with meaning and mystery. In this introduction we explore the origin and the meaning of the expression ta meta ta fysika and it's use in every day life, as well as some obstacles postmodern men have to face in approaching it.
