This book is a new edition of a short but fascinating treatise by Galen on causal theory. This text survives only in a Latin translation of the fourteenth century, and it is this which appears here. The volume also contains the first translation of the treatise into any modern language, and the first philosophical commentary thereon. The commentary ranges widely in Galen's voluminous uvre, and compares his views with those of other ancient theorists. The introduction deals in detail with Galen's life and work, with the background both philosophical and medieval to his causal theory, and with the history of the text itself.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Another excellent edition with commentary in the orange series ... the apparatus criticus is substantial and reasonable. The commentary is rich and clear.' Mnemosyne
"Hankinson's translation into English is careful and scholarly, and his commentary is extensive and useful." Anthony Preus, Religious Studies Review
"...entitled to thanks for making this work of Galen's so much more accessible than it has been, for helping bring it in from the outer margins of surviving classical literature." Rebecca Flemming, Bryn Mawr Classical Review
"...an excellent contribution to Galenic studies." International Philosophical Quarterly
