The Roman writer Cicero viewed Aristotle's work so highly that he labelled them as a "River of Gold".

OUR next task is to study coming-to-be and passing-away. We are to distinguish the causes, and to state the definitions, of these processes considered in general-as changes predicable uniformly of all the things that come-to-be and pass-away by nature. Further, we are to study growth and ""alteration."" We must inquire what each of them is; and whether ""alteration"" is to be identified with coming-to-be, or whether to these different names there correspond two separate processes with distinct natures

Nearly all the works Aristotle (384-322 BCE) prepared for publication are lost; the priceless ones extant are lecture-materials, notes, and memoranda (some are spurious). They can be categorized as practical; logical; physical; metaphysical; on art; other; fragments. Aristotle, great Greek philosopher, researcher, reasoner, and writer, born at Stagirus in 384 BCE, was the son of Nicomachus, a physician, and Phaestis. He studied under Plato at Athens and taught there (367-47); subsequently he spent three years at the court of a former pupil, Hermeias, in Asia Minor and at this time married Pythias, one of Hermeias's relations. After some time at Mitylene, in 343-2 he was appointed by King Philip of Macedon to be tutor of his teen-aged son Alexander. After Philip's death in 336, Aristotle became head of his own school (of "Peripatetics"), the Lyceum at Athens. Because of anti-Macedonian feeling there after Alexander's death in 323, he withdrew to Chalcis in Euboea, where he died in 322. Nearly all the works Aristotle prepared for publication are lost; the priceless ones extant are lecture-materials, notes, and memoranda (some are spurious). They can be categorized as follows:I. Practical: Nicomachean Ethics; Great Ethics (Magna Moralia); Eudemian Ethics; Politics; Oeconomica (on the good of the family); Virtues and Vices. II. Logical: Categories; On Interpretation; Analytics (Prior and Posterior); On Sophistical Refutations; Topica. III. Physical: Twenty-six works (some suspect) including astronomy, generation and destruction, the senses, memory, sleep, dreams, life, facts about animals, etc. IV. Metaphysics: on being as being. V. On Art: Art of Rhetoric and Poetics. VI. Other works including the Athenian Constitution; more works also of doubtful authorship. VII. Fragments of various works such as dialogues on philosophy and literature; and of treatises on rhetoric, politics and metaphysics. The Loeb Classical Library edition of Aristotle is in twenty-three volumes
Aristotle's De partibus animalium I ; and, De generatione animalium I (with passages from II. 1-3) by Aristotle( Book )

22 editions published between 1972 and 2001 in English and held by 1,099 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In De Partibus Animalium I Aristotle sets out his philosophy of biology, discussing cause, necessity, soul, genus, and species, definition by logical division, and general methodology. In De Generatione Animalium I he applies his hylomorphic philosophy to the problem of animal reproduction. The translation is close, and includes passages from De Generatione Animalium II which complete Aristotle's theory of reproduction. The notes interpret Aristotle's arguments and discuss his views on major issues such as natural teleology."--Publisher's description

La metafisica by Aristóteles( )

39 editions published between 1854 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 728 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La Metafisica rappresenta una delle opere più straordinarie del pensiero filosofico. In questa edizione con testo a fronte, la nuova traduzione e il commento di Enrico Berti, il più autorevole studioso di Aristotele. L’importanza di questa nuova traduzione della Metafisica di Aristotele, cioè dell’opera che più di ogni altra ha influenzato la filosofia occidentale, consiste anzitutto nel fatto che essa si basa non sul testo delle più recenti edizioni critiche, come fanno tutte le altre traduzioni, ma sul testo dei manoscritti della cosiddetta ‘famiglia alpha’, oggi riconosciuti da tutti gli studiosi come i più affidabili perché non influenzati dal commento di Alessandro di Afrodisia e degli altri commentatori antichi. Il testo riprodotto a fronte della traduzione è quello dell’edizione Ross, ma il traduttore segnala in nota tutti i passi in cui se ne discosta. Questa scelta, del tutto nuova, permette di restituire in più luoghi il pensiero originale di Aristotele. La traduzione si differenzia da tutte le precedenti per il suo carattere il più possibile letterale, che aderisce al testo greco rendendo tra virgolette i neologismi e le espressioni tecniche introdotte da Aristotele. Ogni intervento del traduttore che vada oltre la lettera è accuratamente posto tra parentesi uncinate, in modo da essere riconoscibile come tale. Le note, oltre a segnalare le variazioni rispetto all’edizione Ross, aiutano la comprensione dei passi più difficili e introducono nuove interpretazioni, dovute agli studi più recenti e alle ricerche dello stesso traduttore. L’introduzione infine propone una nuova interpretazione complessiva della Metafisica di Aristotele, frutto di oltre cinquant’anni di studi personali. (Fuente: Laterza)

Aristotle on sleep and dreams : a text and translation with introduction, notes, and glossary by Aristotle( Book )

7 editions published between 1990 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 299 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This work is designed to make Aristotle's neglected but fascinating writings on sleep and dreams accessible in translation to modern readers, and to provide a commentary with a contemporary perspective. It considers Aristotle's theory of dreams in historical context, especially in relation to Plato. It also discusses neo-Freudian interpretations of Aristotle and contemporary experimental psychology of dreaming. Aristotle's account of dreaming as a function of the imagination is examined from a philosophical perspective. The work is a revised and corrected version of the North American edition."--Jacket
