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. The original edition was published in 1972.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`David Balme's book conforms with both the general character and the high quality of its predecessors in the Clarendon Aristotle Series.' Philosophy
'has been revised in several places to take account of developing interpretations of the meanings of eidos and genos in Aristotle's biological works ... These additions increase the usefulness and extend the life of an already indispensable introduction to the theoretical underpinnings of two of Aristotle's most challenging scientific treatises.' Lee T. Pearcy, The Episcopal Academy, Bryn Mawr Classical Review 4.2 (1993)
