The work as it has come down to us is a compilation of Aristotle's writing on the subject made in Alexandria in the first century CE, and it proved enormously influential from the Greeks onward, through the medieval and Renaissance periods. In Metaphysics, Aristotle absorbed Plato's view that nature is eternal and unchangeable while accepting that we live in a world that appears full of change. A challenging work, Metaphysics is divided into 14 books. It begins with the causes of things and questions the existence of God, the understanding of 'being' and the concept of 'substance'. It proceeds to consider 'actuality', 'potentiality' and 'unity'.
This first recording, using the clear translation by W. D. Ross, is presented in a measured and comprehensible manner by James Cameron Stewart.

More relevant and needed than ever before!!!
Philosophy at it's best. Everything from Descartes onwards has been a total flop.
The solution is Aristotle. Where science at it's best is philosophy and where philosophy at it's best is science.
The narrator has really made this book come alive.

The narrator is very good...Ukemi produces excellent audiobooks.I wish they would do more.
I was expecting a difficult read and so it was...I'll have to listen many many times to begin to understand...unfortunately time is limited and so many books to listen ..
