The eighth book of Aristotle's Physics is the culmination of his theory of nature. He discusses not just physics, but the origins of the universe and the metaphysical foundations of cosmology and physical science. He moves from the discussion of motion in the cosmos to the identification of a single source and regulating principle of all motion, and so argues for the existence of a first `unmoved mover'. Daniel Graham offers a clear, accurate new translation of this key text in the history of Western thought, and accompanies the translation with a careful philosophical commentary to guide the reader towards an understanding of the wealth of important and influential arguments and ideas that Aristotle puts forward.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Professor Graham has given us an excellent translation in modern English * The Review of Metaphysics *
Over the ... decades, a good deal of important and highly influential philosophical scholarship on Aristotle in English has appeared in these commentaries ... The present volume meets the generally high standard set by its predecessors. * BMR. *
Graham's translation and commentary strive for the utmost clarity in the presentation of the argument and the alternative interpretations. In this he seems to me to have been largely successful. Especially valuable is an eight page outline of the argument supplied as an appendix. * BMR. *
The commentary ... is admirably clear and judicious ... a solid and useful piece of work. * BMR. *
