Theophrastus On first principles : (known as his Metaphysics) : Greek text and medieval Arabic translation by Theophrastus( )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The short aporetic essay On First Principals by Theophrastus, thought to have been transmitted as his Metaphysics, is critically edited for the first time on the basis of all the available evidence - the Greek manuscripts and the medieval Arabic and Latin translations - together with an introduction, English translation, extensive commentary, and a diplomatic edition of the medieval Latin translation. This book equally contributes to Graeco-Arabic studies as ancilla of classical studies and includes the first critical edition of the Arabic translation with an English translation and commentary, a detailed excursus on the editorial technique for Greek texts whose medieval Arabic translations are extant as well as for the Arabic translations themselves, and a complete Greek and Arabic glossary as a blueprint for future lexica."--Jacket
On weather signs by Theophrastus( )

15 editions published in 2007 in English and Greek, Ancient and held by 1,479 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The last 30 years have seen a revived interest in Henry of Ghent, one of the leading theologians at the University of Paris in the last quarter of the 13th century. This volume offers a new and comprehensive study of a central aspect of Henry's philosophical thought: his understanding of metaphysics." "The study examines why, according to Henry, there has to be a science investigating being qua being and how such an inquiry is at all possible. In Henry's conception, metaphysics is not just one scientific discipline among others but the first and fundamental one for it deals with the first object of the intellect as its subject-matter. The recognition of this understanding, as the present study intends to show, opens a new perspective on the proper philosophical dimension of Henry of Ghent's thought."--BOOK JACKET
